The Big Orkney Song Projects Aimee Leonard, Sarah Jane Gibbon and Emily Turton sing, with accompaniment by Alex Leonard on guitar, at the Orkney Singers SongShare event in Eday on Saturday 11th July 2009. The Song is Eday Song, written by JD Hunter.

EDAY SONG
(J.D. Hunter)

Away in the northlands where surges are raging
The land of my birth lies engirt by the sea
Where wind and where wave aye their warfare is raging
Is Eday my homeland so dear unto me.

Chorus
Eday, my Eday sweet memories are clinging
And deep in my heart,
Aye thy dear name is ringing.

The ridge of the brown hills raising high oer the skyline,
Guith, Cusbay and Millbounds nestling below;
The white London sands in the glint of the sunshine
Are pictures to treasure wherer i go.

Eday, my Eday sweet memories are clinging
And deep in my heart,
Aye thy dear name is ringing.

From the grand old Red Hed to the south point of Veness
Where the tide edge of Warness lies crested with foam;
From the auld kirk at Skaill to the hill road at Fersness
Thou are all dear to me, Eday my home.

Eday, my Eday sweet memories are clinging
And deep in my heart,
Aye thy dear name is ringing.

In the moonlight by Carrick, famous in story,
I see island and sound by soft radiance caressed.
The beam oer the water in mystical glory
Like the path of the blessd to the havens of rest.

Eday, my Eday sweet memories are clinging
And deep in my heart,
Aye thy dear name is ringing.

Eday, my Eday sweet memories are clinging
And deep in my heart,
Aye thy dear name is ringing.
