Lyrics

Galilee

Written By: Michael Grehan

If there's a place that has its troubles not to seek
Where the hand of history runs and cuts so deep
The home of kings and saviours, poverty and wealth
There's nothing that it hasn't seen or ever felt
But the gentle, soothing hand of peace
To bridge the gap between the varying beliefs,and to
Know one another the way that they are

In truth i'm anxious not to upset or offend
I'm not an expert and of this i cant pretend
I have no job my way i simply cannot find
And as i'm sitting lost of you i think as friends
I can't imagine how it's going to end
I hope above all hope everyone repents
But whatever happens i understand you all

Galilee, galilee
Oh what a story you have i feel
To bathe in the sea of galilee

The fastest way to bring a problem to your door
Is leave a people stranded without help or home
No-one is innocent and the guilt is shared around
In the name of everyones god sort something out
Then see clearly where you have to go
What you have to do to build something that can grow
Then move towards it
To the cheering of the world

Galilee, galilee
Oh what a story you have i feel
To bathe in the sea of galilee

After The Storm

Written By: Michael Grehan

After the storm it's always light
After the storm it's always light
But you don't yet know
If it all ends well

And even though your a wean,well it dont discrimate at all
And with the burden of pain comes the light
After the storm

It's alright now, it's alright now
It's alright now' it's alright now
Don't be down
There's people around

And i know it's hard to take part with all the swirling,turbulence around
Picks you up throws you down and round about and in the end
It's just a lesson learned

After the storm it's always light
After the storm it's always light
But you don't yet know
If it all ends well

And even though your a wean,well it dont discrimate at all
And with the burden of pain comes the light
After the storm

Road And Miles To Dundee

Written By: Words-Trad. Music-MichaelGrehan

Cauld winter was howlin’, o’er moor and o’er mountain
And wild was the surge, of the dark rolling sea
When I met about daybreak, a bonnie young lassie,
Wha asked me the road, and the miles to Dundee
Says I’ my young lassie, I canna' weel tell ye,
The road and the distance, I canna' weel gie,
But if you’ll permit me, tae gang a wee bit-tie,
I’ll show ye the road, and the miles to Dundee
I’ll show ye the road, and the miles to Dundee

At once she consent-ed, and gave me her arm,
Ne' er a word did I speir, wha the lassie micht be
She appeared like an angel, in feature and form,
As she walked by my side, on the road to Dundee
At length wi’ the Howe, O' Strath-mar-tine behind us
The spires O' the toon, in full view we could see,
She said gen-tle sir, I can nev-er for-get ye
For show-ing me far, on the road to dundee
For show-ing me far, on the road to dundee

This ring and this purse take to show I am grateful,
And some simple token I trust you'll gie me,
And in times to come I'll remember the laddie,
Wha showed me the road and the miles to Dundee
I took the gowd pin, from the scarf on my bos-om,
And said "keep ye this, in re-mem-brance O' me",
Then brave-ly I kissed, the sweet lips O' the lassie
E’er I part-ed wi’ her, On the road to Dundee
So here's to the lassie, I ne’er can for-get her
And il-ka young laddie, that's list’ning to me,
O nev-er be sweer, to convoy a young lassie
Though it’s only to show her, the road to Dundee
