Longing

(poem by Val Marshall George)

Over the mountains my love has gone riding
When I will see him I do not know
When he returns I will be waiting
For over those mountains I cannot go

Beyond the moorland and the great river
Up where the eagle rules all the sky
Marshland and quicksands to trap the unwary
Sometimes I wish that my lover could fly

Bring him back safely and bring him back soon
My prayers go with him as I wish on the moon

When his duty is done he will come back here,
Back to the home where his heart lies
And then once more my arms will enfold him
Giving safe haven until he dies

(play chord seq of verse 2 as inst break)

I'll carry his children and protect his line
Their veins will carry both his blood and mine

Let the stars guide every footstep fairies and elves
Bring him home safely back here to me
Let angels watch o'er him wherever he goes
From any danger let him be free

Over the mountains my love has gone riding
When I will see him I do not know
When he returns I will be waiting
For over those mountains I cannot go

Bring him back safely and bring him back soon
My prayers go with him as I wish on the moon
Over the mountains my love has gone riding
When I will see him I do not know
When he returns I will be waiting
For over those mountains I cannot go
