about

We spent a month in Scotland and the great north of England a couple of years ago and whilst there visited the haunting battlefield of Culloden, a large, windswept, damp and misty moor where many fine fellows met their end. I have been to many American Civil War fields of battle and they all have the same eerie quality that Culloden has. As the old song goes... when will we ever learn.

lyrics

MISTS OF THE MORN
© Bob Wright

I walked o’er the moors
at Cullodeen one morn
with the mist holding close in the air
not a soul did I see
but it was clear to me
that the ghosts of the fallen were there

and I’ve felt that before
in a mist I am sure
at Gettysburg when I was there
Flanders great lawns
and the Little Big Horn
they too have ghosts of their own

you’re never alone
where the dead have lain cold
and all of their young blood fell
free of their bones
and it all seems so real
to go out there and feel
they exist
in the mists of the morn

hallowed the fields
left fallow to deal
with all of the pain suffered there
glory and fear
blood gore and tears
adrift in the mists of the morn

you’re never alone
where the dead have lain cold
and all of their young blood fell
free of their bones
and it all seems so real
to go out there and feel
they exist
in the mists of the morn

as I end my brief stay
with a warm cup of tea
and a chance to reflect on the
things I had seen
I look up and I see
the mists of the morn
give way to another sun rising

you’re never alone
where the dead have lain cold
and all of their young blood fell
free of their bones
and it all seems so real
to go out there and feel
they exist
in the mists of the morn

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
