Soul of Man

(C) Jan Moncrieff / Alan McLean 2006/2008

The land and the rivers have a hidden voice
He could hear and feel their wail
He saw their pain, he had no choice
He had to tell their tale

The poor and weak they have no voice
But the lairds have a loud sharp bite
He saw their pain he had no choice
He had to take up their fight.

Chorus

Songs of reason, songs of treason,
Songs of the land and of the soul of man
Songs of reason, songs of treason,
Songs of the land and of the soul of man

The young and frail have a quiet voice
Loudly they cry but are not heard
He saw their pain, he had no choice
He took their plight to his heart

The State it schemes with a powerful voice
That only the few can obey
He saw their pain, he had no choice
He had to have his say

Chorus

The land, the young, the poor, the frail
He championed them all
He fought their cause both Scot and Gael
With words and songs he called

Some they listened then, some they listen still
And through the years they always will...
But though they listened then and though they listen still
When oh, when will his dreams fulfil
