In the last hours of a sunset rendezvous
Chill breeze against tide,
That carries me from you.
Got a job in a southern city
Got some lead-free in my tank.
Now I must whisper goodbye
I'm bound for the mainland.

Island in the city, cut by a cold sea.
People moving on an ocean.
Groundswell of humanity.
Now the sum breaks through rain
As I climb Glen Shiel
On the trail of those old cattlemen
Who drove their bargain south again.
