Aberdour
   ------Southern Tenant Folk Union

(Verse)
Over salt water and on to the island
To find a shelter there.
The age of defenses, cover the watchmen,
Call another to the tender.

We’re calling freedom or isolation,
Hidden from the changing water.
Making an island, making a heaven
Hold each other to the water.

The days when the tide crosses the line, reaches all, face the dark.

The water will shape us, the title will owe us,
To gather what we can find.
Losing the main land, never repeating,
Leave it floating in the water.

The days when the tide crosses the line, reaches all, face the dark.

We tell the children what we remember
So that they know what they are.
The children of eagers, the yes of the empire
And all this conquer down the water.

The days when the tide crosses the line, reaches all, face the dark,
Face the dark.
