Subject: Tune Req: Farewell to Angus
From: GUEST,Jacqued
Date: 10 Apr 13 - 09:27 AM

A long (longer than that!) time ago I sang the above song and then it sort of slid away.   It was taken from an LP 'Home Routes' by Richard Grainger and Dick Miles, and the lyrics are below.   Can anyone please point me back to the tune?   Angus was very well known in the Borders, I'm told.

Angus is gone back up to the hills,
The hands that we shook are now cold.
He sits among friends as the evening ends,
And he calls for the very last tune.

The hands that you shook were warm with good luck,
And he'd lend them to help any friend.
The fellowship of song, no night overlong,
With comrades and time for to spend.

No sad bitter tears do I long to hear,
No dirge as I journey away.
But good songs and cheer, good whisky and beer,
And a piper to play o'er my grave.

But now as I go, my friends you will know -
'tis my lassie I'll miss most of all.
For one more earthly hour with my bonnie flower,
I'd lie in the arms I adore.

So when sun sets are golden o'er hillside and moorland,
Or a lonely blackbird sings in the rain.
Or Sunday bells ringing I'm in paradise singing,
Where you know we will all meet again.
