Song For Johnny

Music and Lyrics by Dougie MacLean
Published by Limetree Arts and Music (MCPS and PRS UK)

I still remember late Saint Vincent nights
When we were young and we were foolish
Let's play another tune and dare to find ourselves
For really who are we

But now that melody has danced away
I hear it sing across the ocean
On his way back home
On his way back home

For many wary miles we chased that tune
Shared the journey with the others
But it seems it hides under the silver moon
And it's mystery still covers me


So we let another good friend go
And we break our hearts with wonder
It seems we never learned to play it slow
We just danced inside the thunder
