I've been asked to find the song from which these (partly recalled) part lyrics come - with no success.

Any help, please, would be appreciated.

"From the highlands and the western islands
......(missing line........
Darkness is falling the piper is calling
The memory lingers where ever I roam".

Sounds Scottish, but....

Regtards

John

Is there anything at all else you can say about the song? Where, when you heard it? Age you were when you heard it?

Sorry, no more info. I made the post at the request of a folk singer from Northern Ireland that I recently met. He emailed that " a friend has asked me to trace an old song; He doesn't know; name,air,origin or tempo. but he gave me some words;" - and contacted me because it sound Scottish (I am based in Stirlingshire). I think I'll have to admit defeat.

Thanks for your interest.

Regards

John

It's not a version of "This Land Is Your Land", is it? Barleycorn have one which includes the line
'From the northern highlands, to the western islands,
This land was made for you and me'

It might be a good idea to make this request on the Footstompin' forum.
