Does anyone have information/lyrics on this song. Geoff Kaufman recorded it on his Fair Stood the Wind record which I can't find. I think I remember the words but I don't trust myself on that score anymore. Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks,
David.

Hi, David. Welcome to the Mudcat.

There's an old gospel balled, "Land on the Shore" (or "Land on Shore"), which is sometimes sung as "Stand on the Shore":

Fathers now our meeting is over
Fathers we must part
And if I never see you again
I'll love you in my heart

And we'll land on the shore
Yes we'll land on the shore
And we'll land on the shore
And be saved forever more

That may not be the one you mean, but it's worth a try.

Aloha,
Mark

LAND ON THE SHORE

Fathers now our meeting is over,
Fathers we must part,
And if I never see you anymore
I'll love you in my heart.

Chorus:
And we'll land on the shore
Yes we'll land on the shore
Yes we'll land on the shore
And be safe forever more.

Mothers now, our meeting is over
Mothers we must part,
And if I never see you anymore
I'll love you in my heart.

Sisters now, our meeting is over
Sister we must part,
And if I never see you anymore
I'll love you in my heart.

Brothers now our meeting is over
Brothers we must part,
And if I never see you anymore
I'll love you in my heart.

My dear friends our meeting is over
Dear friends we must part,
And if I never see you anymore
I'll love you in my heart.


Shot in the dark Gloucesterman.

However, the song you refer to on Kaufman's album is two minutes in duration, so . . . .

Can't believe my eyes! Have just returned home from Bridgnorth Folk Festival where we sang this in two-part harmony with Cloudstreet at their workshop! Have been singing it in my head on the train home, and now here it is again! Is there something in the air? I'd never heard it before Saturday.....

P.S.
   The words we sang were:-
                         "And if we should never meet again,
                           I'll keep you in my heart.."

Here are the words Geoff sings on "Fair Stood the Wind":

Good friends, our meeting is over
Good friends, we must part
And if I never see you anymore
I'll love you in my heart.

Chorus:
And we'll stand on shore
And we'll stand on shore
And we'll stand on shore
And be saved forever more.

Oh brothers, our meeting is over
Sisters, we must part
And if I never see you anymore
I'll love you in my heart.

Repeat 1st verse.

I thought it was "And be safe forever more?" Have to get the tape out and listen more carefully. This has been one of my favs for many years!
