The Banks of the Spey ©

Patrick Scott Hogg
Cumbernauld, Scotland
1992

(To be sung to the original slow air of this name - written for Margaret)

On the banks of the Spey my love and I did lay
Till the dawns glowing light evaporated night
And wrapped us in a golden blanket ray
An always love never fades away

We watched the glow of the sparkling waters flow
By the old oak tree, she gave her love to me
One night's passion in memory to stay
An always love never fades away.

O how that night of bliss, with its endless kiss
Made mad desire run, like the blood of the sun,
And all within, an amorous array:
An always love never fades away.

Her hair, her face, her soft sweet embrace
Not paradise alone could steal away my throne
When she turns my darkness into day
An always love never fades away.
