Well during last nights chat we got talking about a song by The Proclaimers entitled Scotland's Story and one of the members wanted the words so I sat down this morning and copied them all down. Here they are belwo for any interested. Please note there are two spots that have (?) This just indicates that I believe I heard the place in the line corrent though not 100% sure so bare in mind these two lines might have an error in them as it could be a different place the person comes from but I think I heard it right just hard as this group as a decent accent.
I come with glory from west Donegal you came to Glasgow with nothing at all you fought the land lord then the Africa core when you came to Glasgow with nothing at all
Abraham Kaplan from Vilnius you came you were heading for New York but Leiths where you stayed You built a great business that benefits all Since you came to this land with nothing at all
In Scotland's story I read to be king The Gael and Picts the Angle and Danes But so did the Irishman Jew and Ukraine Their all Scotland's story and all worth the same
Joseph Deangelo Dreams of the days When Italian kids in the grass market played Burned down his shop when his boys went to war But all Joes a big man and he forgave all
In Scotland's story I'm told to be king The Gael and Picts the Angle and Dane But where are all the Chinese and Indian names Their in my lands story and their all worth the same
Christina McKay I learned of your name When you traveled South from Belny one day (?) You raised a whole family in one room they say And the X on the line stands in place of your name
So in the old story I bet I come from Gael and Pict and angle and Dane and a pure minded girl who could not write her name it's a common old story but it's mine just the same
All through the story the immigrants came the Gael and the Pict the angle and Dame from Pakistan England and from the Ukraine We're all Scotland's story and all worth the same Your Scotland's story is worth just the same
No problem she knew what I was doing so wasn't a big problem. But had to play a little then repeat it until I made sure words were right or extremely close in thos 2 spots. Took I guess about 30 minutes or so of repeating until entire song was typed in and looking good.
Also thanks for signing my guesbook. I know my forums a little screwy right now have dropped Paul a couple error issues I am getting on it. His board went down last week and somehow mine got hit as well and quite heavily so he's been getting it up and running for me again but still a few bugs left to kill. you can post messages though if you use the link in my signature it will get you into my forum and use the links on the left side of the screen and will work OK you will most likely get an error message when you submit the post but if you hit refresh once you backtrack to the main page it should pop up the post. It's a little weird right now because of the bugs but does seem to work.
