The Golden Apple

Milecastle Waltz

Music by Chris Robins Kennish
Lyrics by Mike Crook

I call to you Mary though I know your not there
The walk you have taken has been long and unfair
I take up your footsteps on the path steep and hard
We will waltz hand in hand for a mile and a yard

I will work through the night while the days they are dark
I meet Jack and Jonney on the steps of The Shark
We are bound for an hour till the memory does fade
And remember my sister and the price she did pay

I think of our fireside where our dreams fade away
In a castle a mile from here an hour from the bay
It will take us an hour or forever and a day
We will meet at the castle dear where together we will lay
