  1. The Kilty Dog

From the recording October Man

Lyrics

As I was driving through the rain
On a cold a blustery day
The waves all crashing on the rocks
As I came to Kilty Bay

Like hordes of Spanish sailors
They over-ran the quay
As if intent to reinvent
The Armada’s history

It was there that I heard the Kilty dog Above the roaring gale
I heard him barking at the sea
I saw his waggling tail!

Up and down the quayside
He jumped and pranced all day
As if each wave had come his way
As friend, come out to play

I wish I was the Kilty dog
I’d never be afraid
I’d see a fresh adventure
In every harsh tirade
I’d bark at all the problems
Turn them into play
I wish I was the Kilty dog
I wouldn’t be afraid
I wish I was the Kilty dog
I wouldn’t be afraid

We can build our sea defences
Try to keep the storm at bay
We can fix the roof
Make it water proof
We can hide ourselves away

But when I go down to Kilty
On a cold September day
I love to watch the Kilty dog
I love to see him play

I wish I was the Kilty dog
I’d never be afraid
I’d see a fresh adventure
In every harsh tirade
I’d bark at all the problems
Turn them into play
I wish I was the Kilty dog
I wouldn’t be afraid
I wish I was the Kilty dog
