GUEST,Ginger Bill Remember Colin Scot? (152* d) RE: Remember Colin Scot? 16 Jun 11


I was looking for some lyrics of Scotties and came upon here.

Scottie was one of the most generous men I have ever met. As as 16 year old he helped advised and introduced me to so many people. He encouraged, cajoled and listened. I remember clearly the first singing of Lament in a beer tent at the Cambridge Folk Festival. He had the verses written on 2 sheets of paper and he played the song for the first time to me and Mike Rogerson-Smith. Later listening to Ray Glynn add the haunting lead guitar sustained me through dark days.

His voice was tempered by the Gitane cigarettes he introduced us to and his pure joy of living his life

I sang Lament at an acoustic club recently and the look on the faces of the young players was what Scottie would have loved.
