ROAD TO ABERDEEN (Traditional) Nanci Griffith - 1998 I thought I saw my mother's eyes On the road to Aberdeen And they did shine above a stranger's smile The colour of the sea And one day I'll take my mother there To see what I have seen The eyes of her great grandfather On the road to Aberdeen Now, I thought I heard my father's voice Along the coast of Wales Singing sweet of tenor in a Cardiff pub With the wind the gust of gales And one day I'll take my father there To sing the harmony And He'll sing high above the water In his grandfather's voice he'll sing Old land, you are holy To the children 'cross the sea Old land, may the sea understand We are all one family In a flower shop in Amsterdam I saw grandmother's hands They were the fragile grace of porcelain With a small gold wedding band And the tulip that I purchased there Is pressed upon a page In a book of psalms grandmother saved From her grandmother's Holland days Now, my sister has grandmother's hands And the skin of ivory And my brother has my mother's eyes They're the colour of the sea And me, I have my father's voice To the coast of Wales I sing And I do cherish these remembrances On the road to Aberdeen It's old land and it's holy To the children 'cross the sea It's old land, may the sea understand We are all one family (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2018)
