THE BLAIR ATHOLL SONG

Tune: Rolling Home (sea chantey) - Words by Donny O'Rourke 

Here in the heart of Scotland
Nature's glories never cease.
Amid the soft green hills of Perthshire
We have known Blair Atholl's peace.
Chorus:
Haste ye back, haste ye back
Haste ye back and don't forget
Happy days here at Blair Atholl.
May God bless our Jamborette.
We have clasped our hands in friendship
We have talked into the night.
Each has sung of his own homeland
By the campfire's fading light.
Chorus
Haste ye back, haste ye back
Haste ye back and don't forget
Happy days here at Blair Atholl.
May God bless our Jamborette.
Some men are blessed with vision
Jack Stewart was such a man.
He's no longer here to guide us
But we'll carry out his plan.
Chorus
Haste ye back, haste ye back
Haste ye back and don't forget
Happy days here at Blair Atholl.
May God bless our Jamborette.
Now the Jamborette is over
in parting some shed tears.
Time can't rob us of the memories.
May they warm us through the years.
Chorus
Haste ye back, haste ye back
Haste ye back and don't forget
Happy days here at Blair Atholl.
May God bless our Jamborette.
