('Meiklewood', The Cricket Ground of
Gargunnock Village, Scotland)
Lyrics composed by
John Henderson on the 2nd of June, 2010, to Vincent Rose and Al Jolson's 1921
chorus music for their song, 'Avalon'.
Ay ! I mynd lang syne at Meiklewid, wi bat, an
baa; I wirked
fur years at Meiklewid, syne gaed, awa; I left ma hert at Meiklewid, as aa gruns-men
shid; The girse
an oaks aye in guid tid at Meiklewid.
The eve'nin sin at
Meiklewid, ayon, compare; The shaddas cast at Meiklewid, the
munelicht there, a sicht sae rare; Ma pom-pom's soonds roon Meiklewid, sae
lood, an clair;
Sich mem'ries I wull ne'er foryet, an mony mair !
