'Of course Caledonia is here, in what may well be its definitive version - and alongside the title track, it is one of the highlights of an excellent disc.' The Herald

'Till Tomorrow is a gem - forty years in the making and the perfect way for Dougie MacLean and his substantial audience to celebrate a career that has given so much to tradition-based music in Scotland.' Folk Radio


Dougie MacLean needs no introduction; as a singer, songwriter, composer and instrumentalist, no artist captures the soul of Scotland with more authenticity or emotion. 'Till Tomorrow' features a hand-picked selection of songs including Heiland Harry, Ca' the Yowes, Green Grow the Rashes, This Love Will Carry, Till Tomorrow and of course, his enduringly popular love song to Scotland, Caledonia. Since he wrote Caledonia in 1977, with its lyrics, ‘You're calling me, and now I'm going home', it has become the unofficial Scots national anthem, topped the Scottish charts and been covered by Paolo Nutini, Amy Macdonald and Ronan Keating.

THIS LOVE WILL CARRY

It's a thin line that leads us and keeps us all from shame
And dark clouds quickly gather along the way we came
There's fear out on the mountain and death out on the plain
There's heartbreak and heartache in the shadow of the flame

CHORUS
This love will carry
This love will carry me
I know this love will carry me

The strongest web will tangle, the sweetest bloom will fall
And somewhere in the distance we try and catch it all
Success lasts for a moment and failure's always near
You look down at your blistered hands as turns another year

CHORUS

These days are golden, they must not waste away
Our time is like that flower and soon it will decay
And though by storms we're weakened, uncertainty is sure
And like the coming of the dawn it's ours for evermore

CHORUS

TALKING WITH MY FATHER

I'm talking with my father
He's talking with his son
And I don't need to look any further
For the one I have become
He says listen to that curlew
That's a sound I love to hear
It's a strange reflection that we look through
Oh that finally finds us here

CHORUS
In this place where life's heart thunders
In this place where time holds still
In this place of harmony
And wonder and values not of gold fulfil

I'm walking with my father
Across these gentle Perthshire hills
It's timeless mysteries that we gather
To make the memories that we fill
He says don't fix what is not broken
No need to find what's not been lost
It's a heavy gate we have to open
An endless field we have to cross

CHORUS

There will always be the brave one
There'll be the one who turns away
With all too many things left undone
Oh and so much left to say
I'm talking with my father
He's talking with his son
I don't need to look any further
For the one I have become

CHORUS

GREEN GROW THE RASHES

There's nought but care on ev'ry han'
In ev'ry hour that passes O
What signifies the worth o' man
An' ‘twas na for the lasses O

CHORUS
Green grow the rashes O
Green grow the rashes O
The sweetest hours that e'er I spent
Were spent amang the lassies O

CHORUS

The warldly race may riches chase
An' riches still may fly them O
An' when at last they catch them fast
Their hearts can ne'er enjoy them O

CHORUS

Gie me a canty hour at e'en
My arms about my dearie O
An' warldly cares an' warldly men
May a' gae tapsalteerie O


TURNING AWAY

CHORUS
In darkness we do what we can
In daylight we're oblivion
Our hearts so raw and clear
Are turning away, turning away from here

On the water we have walked like the fearless child
What was fastened we've unlocked revealing wondrous wild
And in search of confirmation we have jumped into the fire
And scrambled with our burning feet through uncontrolled desire

CHORUS

There's a well upon the hill from our ancient past
Where an age is standing still holding strong and fast
And there's those that try to tame it and to carve it into stone
Ah but words cannot extinguish it however hard they're thrown

CHORUS

On Loch Etive they have worked with their Highland dreams
By Kilcrennan they have nourished in the mountain streams
And in searching for acceptance they had given it away
Only the children of their children know the price they have to pay

CHORUS

TLL TOMORROW

Lift up your glass to tomorrow
Say your own sad farewells for today
But how can parting be such a sweet sorrow
When you can't find the right words to say
Oh I can see I will have to be moving
I've been standing out here for too long
But I know all the friends I'll be losing
I will see them again further on

There's a time when crying comes easy
When there's more to be lost than be won
And I know that tomorrow might see me
On the other side of the sun
And I've been looking in every direction
For the places that I used to know
But on making a closer inspection
I noticed I didn't know which way to go

So we'll finish our glasses together
And we know we can no longer hide
And the silence will linger forever
Oh it is there and it helps you decide
That it's not as it seemed in the stories
That you made when you wanted to dream
So you pick up your pieces before you find out
That you might have been left in between


HOLDING BACK

It's in the darkness of believing
It's in the shadows where we have to stand
Beside the loving and the grieving
O I'll never understand
It's in the way it has to reach us
It's in the restless of the shifting sand
And all the truth it has to teach us
O I'll never understand

CHORUS
Holding back to listen to the ocean
Holding back to dance inside the storm
I may be foolish but I don't care
As long as you are there

From edge to edge we take our pleasure
We follow blindly each insane command
We're judged by some eternal measure
O I'll never understand
O and peace is child to no-one
We're held together by an endless strand
First to be woven then to be undone
O I'll never understand

CHORUS

Soon all the promises are broken
And expectation passes underhand
And not a gentle word is spoken
O I'll never understand
It's in the darkness of believing
It's in the shadows where we have to stand
Beside the loving and the grieving
O I'll never understand

CHORUS


CA' THE YOWES

Ca' the yowes tae the knows
Ca' them whare the heather grows
Ca' them whare the burnie rowes
My bonnie dearie

Hark, the mavis' evening song
Sounding Clouden's woods among
Then a-faulding let us gang
My bonnie dearie

We'll gae doon by Clouden's side
Through the hazels spreading wide
O'er the waves that sweetly glide
Tae the moon sae clearly

Fair and lovely as thou art
You hae stown my very heart
I can die but canna part
My bonnie dearie

Ca' the yowes tae the knows
Ca' them whare the heather grows
Ca' them whare the burnie rowes
My bonnie dearie


HEILAND HARRY

My Harry was a gallant blade
Fou stately straid he on the plain
Noo he's banished far awa'
And oh he'll no' come back again

CHORUS
Oh for him back again
Oh for him back again
I wud gi' a' Knockhaspie's land
For Heiland Harry back again

When a' the lave gang tae their bed
I wander dowie up the glen
Sit me doon and greet ma fill
For Heiland Harry back again

CHORUS

Oh were some villains hingit high
And ilke body had their ain
I might see the joyful sight
Of Heiland Harry back again

CHORUS


MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS

Something happened here in this cold deserted place
Where mighty walls have vanished leaving not a trace
Something's not quite right where ravens cast a guilty eye
And hidden reason still continues to deny

CHORUS
But Mary I can feel your pain I can hear your heart breaking
On the silent fields of Fotheringay I can hear your heart breaking

We give our might to men who take it as their own
And in our name destroy with every thrown stone
We stand the simple fools we watch them break it down
But the stolen voice lies silent it cannot make a sound

CHORUS

We've found a darkness here belief has withered well away
And time has sacrificed but no-one dares to say
Something's not quite right where ravens cast a guilty eye
And hidden reason still continues to deny

CHORUS

THE GAEL

Instrumental

CALEDONIA

I don't know if you can see the changes that have come over me
In these last few days I've been afraid that I might drift away
So I've been telling old stories, singing songs that make me think about where I came from
And that's the reasons why I seem so far away today

CHORUS
Oh but let me tell you that I love you, that I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me and now I'm going home
If I should become a stranger you know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had

I have moved and I've kept on moving, proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing, found others on the way
Oh and I have tried and I've kept on trying, stolen dreams, yes there's no denying
I have travelled hard, with conscience flying somewhere with the wind

And now I'm sitting here before the fire, the empty room the forest choir
The flames that couldn't get any higher they've withered now they've gone
But I'm steady thinking, my way is clear and I know what I will do tomorrow
When the hands have shaken and the kisses flow well I will disappear
