Farewell To Whisky

Music and Lyrics by Dougie MacLean
Published by Limetree Arts and Music (MCPS and PRS UK)

The new day enters through the dawn
Revealing all we need to see
It thunders as it moves us on
Then disappears so perfectly

It can never last, that shining light
It burns into a fading glow
And as we watch the time fold on
We hold and then we must let go

The oak, so sturdy strong and tall
The great enduring shelter tree
Though in the end will final fall
With grace fulfils it's destiny


Let's value well good times we share
With music warm and friendship true
For surely when we say goodbye
The circle turns and starts anew
