Music in the Morning No. 222 – Drever, McCusker, Woomble

 

A Scots welcome this morning: Kris Drever leads on this lovely song but with others alongside. 

This is magical!

 

Drever, McCusker Woomble                                    The Poorest Company

 

THE POOREST COMPANY

When the wind feels like the words are breathing in and out of me,
And I'm standing beside you, there's a shadow where a man should be,
I would be glad enough if wherever I might be,
People would remember we're woven in a tapestry.

When we steal what we can, with the courage to be free,
And I've found where I belong among the poorest company.

When the wind feels like the world, a useless spinning orrery,
A country round its shoulders, a flag raised on a gallows tree,
I won't let it get me down. I know there are people now
Who bind together what they do and live their lives like I want to.

When we steal what we can, I take everything I see,
And I've found where I belong among the poorest company.

When we steal what we can, with the courage to be free,
And I've found where I belong among the poorest company.

 

 

Beauty!

Brilliant!  

I had another song lined up for this slot but then I found this gem.
