Subject: Lyr Add: SONGS OF HOME (from Barleycorn)
From: GUEST,Iona (not-logged-in)

This song appears on Barleycorn's album "My Last Farewell" (1987), sung by Derek McCormick. Does anybody know who wrote this?

Songs of Home

chorus:
Old turf fires, children's smiles, friends to walk with miles and miles
No need now feeling alone when we sing the songs of home

In Australia far away through the dust and heat
Once I found an old bushman tending to his sheep
Asked if he would play awhile, banjo on his knee
And much to my surprise, I knew his melody

So many nights I've watched the sun go down on Frisco Bay
And sang those songs of nights back home, in the meadows making hay
I heard in Manitoba once a mother hush a child
And the lullaby she sang to him took me back across the miles

Songs of home are songs of hope and dreams of other days
songs of valleys green and low, and safe unchanging ways
Songs of home are songs of love are songs of love, sometimes tinged with blue
And every song of home I hear is all wrapped up in you

Aideen O'Donnell also sings it on her album "Child and the Autumn Leaf" (2005.)

I only know that because I played part of every song with the title "Songs of Home" that was available on Spotify. There are several different songs with the same title.

Unfortunately, her web site doesn't say who wrote it, even though you can hear a clip of her singing it.

[Advice to everyone who has a web site: Put lots of relevant information there. The more information you have, the more likely someone will land on your site by way of Google.]

She can be reached there in the event you wish to ask who authored the song.
