I made this request last April & got no responses. Can anyone help me now? I love the song, but can't understand a few of the words on Bogle's recording. Thanks!

G'day bbc,

Could you give us a few more clues? I can't place any of Wee Eric's songs with those exact words. Obviously, he is very well-known for his songs 'No Man's Land' and Band Played Waltzing Matilda" but he has written many songs. they aren't always known by his original titles and the opening lines would be a great help.

I must admit that the line "Across the Hills of Home" keeps reminding me of the Andy Stewart pop hit of the 1960s - "The Scottish Soldier".

Regards,

Bob Bolton

Hi, Bob,

I have the song (what I listed is the title) on a CD called "The Eric Bogle Songbook". It says it is from his recording, "Something of Value" & is based on a poem by James MacArthur. It's a beautiful song. The chorus goes "You take the low road; I'll take the high; and back to Scotland, my spirit will fly, to see thee more more time before I die. You take the low road and I'll take the high." I'd love to sing it, but there are a few words scattered through it which I simply can't understand. Any help would be appreciated.

ACROSS THE HILLS OF HOME (Jimmy's Song)

Words by Eric Bogle & James McArthur, Music by Eric Bogle. 1988 (Larrikin Music Pty. Ltd.

Where wide the Murrumbidgee flows
The stately gum and watle grows,
And deep within the forests tall
The laughing Kookaburra's call
Across the miles and down the years
I dream my eyes too old for tears
Of other scenes more fair than these
And I chase a heather scented breeze
Across the huills of home.

CH:
You take the low road, I'll take the high.
And back to Scotland my spirit will fly
To see her one more time before I die
You take the low road and I'll take the high.

And when the mists of evening rise
To hide the starlight in the skies
My heart withlonging sadness fills
To see again the Scottish hills
Once more as in my boyhood days,
I roam the bracken covered braes
And hear them singing in the glen
"Will ye no' come back again"
Across the hills of home.

CH

Fast flows the river, faster still
The days of youth that never will
Return, Now only dreams remain
Of purple hills and fields of grain
But I still hear across the miles
The haunting calls of misty isles
Above the tidal water's roar,
But I know that I shall go no more
Across the hills of home.

CH

Oh, Rich, thank you *so* much! Now, the mysteries are cleared up; can't wait to sing it! BTW, folks, if my message looked like it was missing a few words, I (mistakenly) put my titles in brackets. I suspect that was read as HTML lingo. Sigh.
