about

While on tour in Scotland, Fae challenged the boys to write a song about their travels. This is Falcone's song. It brings us back to the fair town of Dunkeld everytime we play it.

lyrics

Along the Tay

In the 14th century along the banks of bonny Tay.
A young lad drew his sword too late and on that bank he lies today.
We are driving north from Edinburgh.
The boot's all laid with music gear.
Up to Dunkeld town for beer
and a tune or two for those who'll hear.

And we will stay there. And we will play their fair.
From our land and loved ones 'cross the pond
to a town we've not laid eyes upon.

Beneath the town's a cobbled street
that led up to a castle wall.
Many Picts and Jacobites did fall
and their gravestones ring the ruined hall.
We are met by violins at chins,
played by masters half our age.
With a pint and grin we all join in
‘cause every pub's a common stage.

And we will play there. And we will play their fair.
From our land and loved ones 'cross the pond
to a town we've just laid eyes upon.

Won't you come sit a while? Yes, let's come sit a while.
Won't you come sit a while and play?
Won't you come sit a while? Yes, let's come sit a while and play.

Back in the 14th century fair Dunkeld town did come to be.
And it grew 'til folks lived comfortably
to the point where they cheer company.
We are packed before we want to be.
The car is due back at half-three.
We subside a little with each street
that takes us from those souls we'd meet.

If we could stay there. If we still played their fair;
but, our land and dear ones 'cross the pond
are the loves we first laid eyes upon.
