From Blair in Atholl to Carolina's green and gold this way has found us
For times to come and for time that's growing old the days roll around us

And we'll drink to the wild ones to the laughter of the child ones
To the ones who have broken away
And we'll drink for their pleasure another long Island measure
And fall into another new day

We wait for no-one we are howling at the moon and fate's destination
With heads on fire we will turn another tune until dawn's restoration


We may be lost we maybe can't stand still long enough to believe it
But we share the cost and we'll wander on until it's our time to leave it
