David Silver's 'Away to the West...' version is copyright to Westminster Music. You can of course perform it in public as per any song. You only have no legal right to claim a copyright of any arrangement.

My father Stewart Ross's copyright version 'in the year long gone by....' is more personal, and not as suitable for choirs. Both these lyrics date from 1963.
