The poacher and his daughter throw soft shadows on the water in the night.
And later on the coast road, I meet them and the old man winks a smile.
I walk with them, they wish me luck when I ship out on the Sunday from the Kyle.
Oh, poacher's daughter, Sunday best, two hundred brave souls share the farewell tear.

Where the mountain men are kings and the sound of the piper counts for everything.
I did all they asked of me.
Going back to the mountain kings where the sound of the piper counts for everything.
Long generations from the Isles
Where the spiral ages meet.
Future sun called winds to blow
Flew hunting high and circling low over blackened plains of Eden.
There's a child and a woman praying for an end to the mystery.
To where the mountain men are kings and the sound of the piper counts for everything.

Where the mountain men are kings and the sound of the piper counts for everything.
And the sound of the piper counts for everything.
Feel the naked dust beneath my toes
And the past and present black-eyed crow
Between dream mountains of our Eden.
