Colum sure has some very nice songs. I heard him sing several years ago in Derry and was enchanted.

THE NOTE THAT LINGERS ON
(Words & music; Colum Sands @ Elm Grove Music)

I saw you by the river that goes flowing on forever
The blossoms from the apple tree were falling for your charms
I looked at you, you looked at me, but both of us could plainly see
That the river stood between us and the slightest chance of harm.

I was walking down the road that leads from August to September,
When I saw you picking berries with their colours on your hand,
Like the swallows on the rooftop you were making plans for Winter,
When I came a little closer, like the swallows you were gone.

But do you know or don't you that I'll be thinking of you
That I feel you right beside me in the singing of a song,
And we'll sing it where the road goes round the corner to remember
That the magic of the music's in the note that lingers on.

There was ice upon the river and the city seemed to shiver
Til I saw you in the market place that keeps the winter warm
You were selling herbs and spices and a drink of human kindness
And a candle for the winter that the darkness might be gone.

When the ice begins to splinter and the Spring is coaxing Winter
Into taking off his ragged coat as days are turning warm
With the seasons I'll remember that as June said to December,
Love and life is letting go as much as holding on.

But do you know or don't you know that I'll be thinking of you
That I feel you right beside me in the singing of a song,
And we'll sing it where the road goes round the corner to remember
That the magic of the music's in the note that lingers on.

Cheers, S. in Seattle

And here's the song sung by Colum on his MySpace site.

And several other songs on his website.

My favorite CD of his is "All My Winding Journeys" (1996), perhaps because these were the songs I heard him sing in Derry. He also had a songbook of the same title (published in 2000). He is a wonderful songwriter and story teller.

Cheers, S. in Seattle
