Drumshanty Origin: May We Go Now (from Ian F. Benzie) (15) May We Go Now - any info? 30 Jul 01


ON Ian F Benzie's 1995 album "So Far" there is the following song. The liner notes say it is a fragment of something he once heard in someone's car. There is no more information. Does anyone out there know anything about the song? Specifically, is it traditional? Are there more verses? Has anyone else recorded it?

May we go now, may we go now
May we go to where the musing goes
Where the musing goes
When we put our pipes away
Where the musing goes, where the musing goes
When we put our pipes away

We'll sing and dance
We'll sing and dance, we'll play
With our hearts and with our voices
With our voices, in the storm against the wind
With our voices, with our voices
In the storm against the wind.

Thanks

Tracy
