10. Shannachie

Recounting the memories of our ancestral soul
a history that has grown thousands of years old
by firelight spoke a man of warriors bold
for love of land and heritage, our history he once told

with authority and conviction, he spoke aloud
of our origins and reasons for being proud
in his words the ways of old could always be found
past tales of glory fought for on hallowed ground

chorus
shanachie! shanachie!
where have you gone now?
your peaple have grown lost
will you never be found?
shanachie! shanachie!
let us hear your vocie again
within our living age
may your spirit always remain

our peoples minds have become mechanized
by machinery that assimilates their lives
lies and distortion of truth are televised
lost is our culture through glazed eyes
