D   A   D   A

A                                  D
The West winds blow to Coshieville
And with the winds came we
    E7              A
And where the river hugs the wood
    D                    A          F#m
And Blackthorns bloom in May, there stood
  B7           E
A single Rowan Tree
D                    A            E7
So young and tender, so were you
I loved you both, as there you grew
    D              A         F#m
The day I took the road that leads
   Bm     E7      A    D  A    D
By Rannoch to the sea

We carved our names in Coshieville
    D                 A
The Rowan leaves were still
        E7                 A
But the darkening West was in your eyes
   D                A      F#m
Despite your kisses and my lies
   B7                       E
My thoughts had crossed the hill
  D                       A
I broke your heart as the minutes passed
  E7                     A
I shrugged and said that nothing lasts
    D                 A        F#m
But many the backward glance I cast
     Bm        E7      A      D  A    D  A
As I went North to the drill

The big wheels rumble up and down
    D                A
The lorries know the way
  E7               A
I waved my hand, I hitched a ride
   D                     A       F#m
We crossed the bridge at Rannoch-side
          B7            E
Where the diesel motors play
D                      A
Then I set myself to a cliff of stone
   E7                          A
My ears to the boring-hammer's drone
        D              A     F#m
But the ache inside, I rued alone
    Bm      E7    A    D  A   D  A
For you were far away

But the money moved from Erichts Loch
        D                   A
And the Great Glen beckoned on
   E7            A
At Norriston the hills grew pale
   D                        A      F#m
We fought and drank through old Kintail
         B7             E
Till our money soon was gone
      D                    A
And I curse Loch Aweside's autumn rain
    E7                   A
The winter whiskey in Dunblane
         D                      A       F#m
Till the west winds rose in the spring again
       Bm         E7      A     D  A   D  A
And my heart leapt at its song

Then I came at last to Coshieville
       D            A      E7
With a dozen hills aflame
You had another hand to hold
  D                  A         F#m
Beneath the names we carved of old
      B7          E
There was another name
    D                      A       F#m
You looked me through, you made no sign
  Bm         E7            A
I drank that cup of bitter wine
    D                A         F#m
For well we knew the fault was mine
      Bm       E7     A     D   A   D   A
And I went the road I came
