Caladonian Heartbeat (V)

#CHORUS#
Caladonian heartbeat you can hear it in the drums
In the peabrock and the Strathspey in the chanter and the drones
rhymin in the poetry and singin in the songs
Caladonian heartbeat playin on and on and on

Ever since I can remember ever since I was a boy
the pipes and drums were playin on the street where I was born
I'm Major Willie Heatherington who stood where thousands fell
the magic of the music and the stories they would tell

#CHORUS#

Although I wandered far away oer many a lonely mile
Caladonian heartbeat and the Caladonian smile
warmed me just like Bushmills on a weary winters night
Caladonian heartbeat  playin everythings all right

#CHORUS#
