Subject: Lyr Req: Sheep are in the hall...(Scottish Song)
From: Curious Clouseau
Date: 17 May 11 - 05:16 AM

Hi,

I'm looking for the lyrics to a Scottish song that contains the following lines (that I can remember):
"The sheep are in the hall with their fleece worth more than gold"
and
"Over the hills behind the Clyde"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Maybe not right song.

DOWN IN THE GLEN.
(Harry Gordon / Tommie Connor)
Recorded by:
Deep River Boys, Sydney Devine, Josef Locke,
The Luton Girls Choir, Paddy Noonan, Robert Watson.

Twilight is softly falling
as the sun sinks in the West,
The one I love is calling,
"Shepherd, come home to rest."

At hush of even-tide,
O'er the hills beyond the Clyde,
I go roaming to my heaven,
Down in the Glen

Though humble it may be,
There an angel waits for me,
In that lonely little heaven,
Down in the glen.

Across the moonlit heather,
My lassie calls as I roam,
'Tis soon we'll be together
In that heaven we call "home".

The sheep are in the fold,
And there's peace worth more than gold,
For that shepherd in that heaven,
Down in the glen.
