Another Story

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Singing Land (1985) and on the album With Strings (2003).

He is the farmer and he turns our tired soil
And watches as the water once so cool is brought up to the boil
His tired eyes from relentless seasons burn
And holds him to his every word and all things still left undone

Look now there's another page another story
Look now there's another reason why it's hard to rest in peace

He is the sailor and he rolls on seven seas
And we know he won't let go till the storm has brought him to his knees
He'll keep on searching until all the shoals have gone
And there's not one single dream that he can sail his ship upon

Look now there's another page another story
Look now there's another reason why it's hard to rest in peace

He is the honest man and we all know how he's been
And we all know his story and we've seen it on the silver screen
And though his wisdom we barely try to save
His memory it lingers and it will haunt us to the grave

Look now there's another page another story
Look now there's another reason why it's hard to rest in peace
