[One victim out of
about sixteen thousand from the Sutherland Highland Clearances,
Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 23rd of September, 2008
to Tito Mattei's 'Non E Ver'.
Hedder growes and wul hulls stan ivver in ma braw mither-lan;
Bit Ah ken I'll ne'er tryst mair wi ma Scottish kin an freens
Lang syne Ah wis garred tae lea an sail athort the western sea;
Thon wis roch an teuk muckle tholin, bit syne t'wis sodger-oan
The USA an new life tae be weil biggit up,
Nae mains or grains - a chiel maun wirk tae airn an sup;
Year oan year an hame foryat,
Bit nae ma paarents an siblins an aa bairns they've begat.
Aa oot o sicht,
Bit nae o myn;
Ay oot o sicht,
Bit nae o myn.
