TRACK: New Fiona Hunter song for February

On 27th February 2014

To celebrate the launch of her debut solo album, and since it’s still February (just), Fiona has recorded a bonus track, ‘Thou Cauld Gloomy Feberwar’. Have a listen! Download the album in itunes, bandcamp, or buy a physical copy here.

From the Pen of Robert Tannahill, the Paisley Poet. A beautiful song from the perspective of a Girl wishing the Gloomy Month of February to end as her Lover has promised he will return to her in the Spring.

lyrics

Thou cauld gloomy Feberwar,
O gin thou wert awa’,
I’m wae to hear thy sughing winds,
I’m wae to see thy snaw,
For my bonnie brave young Highlander,
The lad I loe sae dear,
Has vow’d to come and see me
In the spring o’ the year.As gloamin dims the sky,
I wander out alane
Whar buds the bonnie yellow whins
Around the trystin stane,
Twas there he pressed me to his heart,
And kissed away the tears,
He vowed to come and see me
In the spring o the year.Ye breezes saftly blaw,
And cleed anew the wuds ;
Ye lav’rocks lilt your cheery sangs
Amang the fleecy clouds ;
Till Feberwar and a his train
Affrighted disappear,
I’ll hail wi you the blythesome change,
The spring o the year.
