Lyrics

Through these misty eyes I see lonely skies Lonely road to Babylon Where's my family And my country Heaven knows where I belong Pack my bags tonight Here's one Jacobite Who must leave or surely die Put me on a train In the pouring rain say farewell But don't say goodbye Seagull carry me, over land and sea To my own folk, that's where I want to be Every beat of my heart Tears me further apart I'm lost and alone in the dark I'm going home One more glass of wine Just for auld lang syne And the girl I left behind How I miss her now In my darkest hour And the way our arms entwine Seagull carry me, over land and sea To my own folk, that's where I want to be Every beat of my heart Tears me further apart I'm lost and alone in the dark I'm going home And we'll drink a toast To the blood red rose Cheer a while the Emerald Isle And to the northern lights And the swirling pipes How they make a grown man cry Seagull carry me, over land and sea To my own folk, that's where I want to be Every beat of my heart Tears me further apart I'm lost and alone in the dark I'm going home
