(01) Border Reiver 4.35

LYRICS

Southern bound from Glasgow town
she’s shining in the sun
my Scotstoun lassie
on a border run
We’re whistling down the hillsides
and tearing up the climbs
I’m just a thiever stealing time
in the Border Reiver

Three hundred thousand on the clock
and plenty more to go
Crash box and lever
– she needs the heel and toe
She’s not too cold in winter
but she cooks me in the heat
I’m a six-foot driver but you can’t adjust the seat
in the Border Reiver

‘Sure as the Sunrise’
that’s what they say about the Albion
‘Sure as the Sunrise’, that’s what they say
about the Albion and she’s an Albion
She’s an Albion

The Ministry don’t worry me
my paperwork’s alright
They can’t touch me
I got my sleep last night
It’s knocking out a living wage
in 1969
I’m just a thiever stealing time
in the Border Reiver

‘Sure as the Sunrise’
that’s what they say about the Albion
‘Sure as the Sunrise’, that’s what they say
about the Albion and she’s an Albion
She’s an Albion

I've just revisited this track or should say the album today and after listening to the opening few bars of this most 'majestic of tunes' it has filled me with such happiness!
I think ultimately of when I first heard this tune (12 years ago) and I immediately, like then was filled with warmth from this upbeat track.
I then also think of the tour that was to follow in 2010 where this lovely tune was used as the concert opener and meeting up with a lot of you on here for the very first time including Pottel, Superval and Ingrid at my home venue of the Bournemouth International Centre on the 28th May 2010. It was on this date I joined this fantastic forum and I haven't looked back - Oooooh Nostalgia!!
