Bread and Fishes

(Alan Bell MCPS/Arr.Quigg & McCalman)

'A song from the Moray Firth village of Burghead, its fishermen and the North Sea. Written by Gordon Menzies of Gaberlunzie.'

As I went a walking one morning in spring
I met with some travelers in an old country lane
One was an old man, the second a maid
The third was a young boy who smiled as he said

With the wind in the willows and the birds in the sky
There's a bright sun to warm us wherever we lie
We have bread and fishes and a jug of red wine
To share on our journey with all of mankind

I sat down beside them the flowers all around
We ate on a mantel spread out on the ground
They told me of peoples and prophets and kings
And all of the one God who knows everything

Sadly I left them in an old country lane
I knew that I never would see them again
one was an old man the second a maid
the third was a young boy who smiled as he said
