CALEDONIA (Bert Jansch) Bert Jansch Last night as I lay sleeping, a dream it came to me I thought I heard a piper play the sweetest melody People gathered round a’ dancing and singing so merrily They’re all singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free Singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free From the busy heart of Glasgow to Lochranza by the sea O’er the water to Kintyre, the prettiest place you’ll ever see To the pubs and bars of Oban, they’re all proud of their old country They’re all singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free Singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free On the road to Drumnadrochit, there’s music everywhere For the piper plays for Nessie a sweet and tender air Through Glengarry’s running rivers, cascading to the sea To the tranquillity of Ullapool, ah now that’s Scotland to me Come wild and windy weather, Caledonia ever free When the fiddle plays from Shetland, they heard the piper’s song They came o’er the sea to join him, they danced and they sang along From the granite city southward, on the road to bonny Dundee They’re all singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free Singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free Now if you ever come to Scotland, ever come to visit my home You can hear the piper playing, standing all alone For he plays from Edinburgh Castle, that looks out to the sea He’ll have you singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free Singing and dancing, Caledonia ever free
