SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS (Horatio Nicholls / Edgar Leslie) Jack Hylton - 1927 When day is breaking and birds are awaking I'm blue when the sun starts to beam Night-time a-stealing is much more appealing As I lay me down to dream I see my homeland where love is supreme.... Shepherd of the hills, I hear you calling Shepherd of the hills, when twilight falls I seem to picture the black sheep returning I miss the fold, and my sad heart is yearning For the daffodils and crimson clover By the rocks and rills I long to roam Back to the near ones and dear ones who love me Shepherd of the hills, I'm coming home Over the highway as I'm wending my way I look toward the house in the lane There with her knitting I see someone sitting She looks through the window pane She knows her waiting has not been in vain.... Shepherd of the hills, I hear you calling Shepherd of the hills, when twilight falls I seem to picture the black sheep returning I miss the fold, and my sad heart is yearning For the daffodils and crimson clover By the rocks and rills I long to roam Back to the near ones and dear ones who love me Shepherd of the hills, I'm coming home
