Slave's Lament

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Indigenous (1991) and on the album Tribute (1995).

It was in sweet Senegal
That my foes did me enthral
For the lands of Virginia o
Torn from that lovely shore
And must never see it more
And alas I am weary weary o

All on that charming coast
Is no bitter snow or frost
Like the lands of Virginia o
There streams forever flow
And the flowers forever grow
And alas I am weary weary o

This burden I must bear
While the cruel scourge I fear
In the lands of Virginia o
And I think on friends most dear
With a bitter bitter tear
And alas I am weary weary o

It was in sweet senegal
That my foes did me enthral
For the lands of Virginia o
Torn from that lovely shore
And must never see it more
And alas I am weary weary o
