Pulling Hard Against the Stream

Someone wondered what I'd sound like with instrumental backing. Here you go.

This song was written by Harry Clifton, a prolific English Music Hall writer, active in the mid 1800's. I got it from Alison McMorland, who collected it from Willie Scott, a shepherd in the Border region of Scotland. I love the sentiment of this song.

Wow. I feel like I've heard this song before. This guy has the lyrics up. Your version of it is very lovely, thank you.

Jessamyn, that's hilarious. I know him, and I sang that song at his wedding. It's me he's referring to, singing it. :)
