Catterthun's ©

Christian Allday
Brechin, Scotland
2006

Awa to the west, where I'm longing to be
Where the beauties of heaven unfold just for me
Where the vibrant purple heather grows fragrant and free
On the hills of the place that is sacred to me.

(Chorus)
Place of my childhood, I'm dreaming of thee
From the top you can view the blue of the sea
Soon I'll return, that place is waiting for me
So I'll be back once more upon The Catterthun's

So gentle the breeze, that blows all through the day
Where the birds and animals, and all the children play
With each of the grass I'll welcome another day
And I'll roam forever more The Catterthun's

(Chorus)
Place of my childhood, I'm dreaming of thee
From the top you can view the blue of the sea
Soon I'll return, that place is waiting for me
So I'll be back once more upon The Catterthun's

The gem of the highlands, where everything feels right
And the beauties of the day shall fade gently to night
How I long to see all of those birds in flight
As they fly free high above The Catterthun's

(Chorus)
Place of my childhood, I'm dreaming of thee
From the top you can view the blue of the sea
Soon I'll return, that place is waiting for me
So I'll be back once more upon The Catterthun's
