Here's The Life For You And Me - A Galloway Song - Poem by Patrick Scott Hogg

Here’s the primrose on the knowe
Here’s the rhododendron bough
Here’s the bracken turning gold
Here’s the lillies bloomin bold
Here’s the bluebell growing free
Here’s the life for you and me.

Here’s the sunny Banks o Fleet
Here’s the honeysuckle sweet.
Here’s Palnackie’s sandy bay
Here’s the bonnie broom in May
Here’s the far famed rowan tree
Here’s the life for you and me.

Here’s the Mull of Galloway
Here’s Portpatrick’s Lifeboat day
Here’s St Ninian’s hiding caves
Here’s the Covenanter’s graves
Here’s the winding banks o Cree
Here’s the life for you and me.

Here’s the rolling hills sae green
Here’s the Merrick’s crowning scene
Here’s Glentrool’s wild rugged glade
Here’s whar Bruce his battle made
Here’s the heather on the lee
Here’s the life for you and me.

Here’s a cottage by the shore
Here’s the ivy o’er the door
Here’s the wind wild in yer hair
Here’s the lazy days o’ care:
Here’s the land I long to see
Here’s the life for you and me.
