OK - I'll resurrect this one. I am also looking for these lyrics. I have a CD with it on, but cannot pick up a couple of the words. If I need to struggle with it, then I will. The song is credited to "K. Munro" on the CD, but I cannot locate anything on the web.

Any takers? Thanking you in anticipation,

Shimbo

Did you possibly mean Alderney?

If so here are the lyrics.

Como gasto papeles recordandote
como me haces hablar en el silencio,
como no te me quitas de las ganas
aunque nadie me vea nunca contigo.
Y como pasa el tiempo que, de pronto, son años
sin pasar tú por mí, detenida.
Te doy una canción si abro una puerta
y de la sombra sales tú.
Te doy una canción de madrugada,
cuando más quiero tú luz.
Te doy una canción cuándo apareces
el misterio del amor,
y si no lo apareces, no me importa:
yo te doy una canción.
Si miro un poco afuera, me detengo:
la ciudad se derrumba y yo cantando.
La gente que me odia y que me quiere
no me va a perdonar que me distraiga.
Creen que lo digo todo, que me juego la vida,
porque no te conocen ni te sienten.
Te doy una canción y hago un discurso
sobre mi derecho a hablar
te doy una canción con mis dos manos
con las mismas de matar.
Te doy una canción y digo patria
y sigo hablando para ti.
Te doy una canción como un disparo
como un libro, una palabra, una guerrilla
como doy el amor.
André Velloso - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

ALBANY ROGER WHITTAKER


---------------------------------------------------------------------

Dies ist Gordon McKenzies Lied. Sein Lied von Albany,
dem stolzen Schlož seines Clans, das er eines Tages
f쳌r immer verlieren sollte ...

Albany, hoch in den Bergen von Norton Green,
Albany, in deinen Mauern war ich einst zuhause,
Albany, Schlož meiner V„ter, das ich geliebt,
ach, k"nnt' ich dich nur einmal wiedersehen.

Charles und Gordon waren zwei Br쳌der,
sangen als Kinder die gleichen Lieder,
jagten gemeinsam in den W„ldern.
Doch aus Bruderliebe und Freundschaft
wurde eines Tages bitt're Feindschaft,
als sie sah'n, sie liebten beide daselbe M„dchen.

Albany, hoch in den Bergen von Norton Green,...

Frag' nach Albany, man wird dir erz„hlen:
Einst war jeder Raum voll Leben und Licht.
Geh' nach Albany, finster schau'n die T쳌rme.
Klopf an jede T쳌r, man "ffnet dir nicht.

Charles und Gordon waren zwei Br쳌der,
man sagt einer stach den andern nieder,
doch ihren fairen Kampf sah keiner.
Wie ein M"rder mužte Gordon fliehen,
kein McKenzie hat ihm je verziehen,
rastlos zieht er umher, findet keinen Frieden.

Albany, hoch in den Bergen von Norton Green, ...
Albany, hoch in den Bergen von Norton Green, ...

Thank you, The Villan. You have the correct song. Now, my one year of German in Second year high school is not going to be a lot of help. I believe I have successfully lifted the words from the CD I have, and will post them on this forum (eventually), US laws and Digitrad permitting.

Thank you for your help.

As promised a month ago, here are the (English) words:

ALBANY
(by: K. Munro. Story of Gordon Mackenzie and his family home)
As sung by Roger Whittaker

Chorus:
Albany, that once stood high over Norton Green,
Albany, whose mighty walls the people sheltered under,
Albany, proud symbol set in the Highlands green,
Just like a song. A song that lasts forever.

Gordon was the eldest son, a golden eagle so the story runs,
His brother Charles dark as a raven,
One night in jealous rage and spite, the raven struck with all his might,
The eagle turned as quick as light, and slew the raven.

(Chorus)

See the king's men come, riding through the heather,
"Mackenzie's life!", they cry, "and all his lands!",
Silent clansmen stand, motionless together,
An English king won't have a Highland man.

So the king, by his decree, did raze with fire poor Albany,
To let the people see his power,
But Highland justice did prevail, and according to the clansmen's tale,
A golden eagle nests forever in her tower.

(Chorus)
