Track Name: Born In The Borders
Reiving shaped these shifting lands
From River Tweed to Solway Sands
Loyal to the Border bands
Strong hearts born in the borders

O the green valleys, o

Where the beech and barley grow
My heart swells at the sight of

The beauty that’s Born in the Borders
O the green valleys, o

The green valleys, o

There’s naught but care in every hand
That spins the yarn or ploughs the land
That deftly loves the making and
The craft that’s born in the borders

O the green valleys, o …

He catches her eye, she lights a flame
The world will never seem the same
They catch their breath and make their claim
A love that’s born in the borders

There’s boldness in beauty, there’s laughter in love
Rich earth below (and) bright skies above
There’s crafting a life from the best you have
New beginnings are born in the borders

O the green valleys, o

Where the beech and barley grow
My heart swells at the sight of

The beauty that’s Born in the Borders

O the green valleys, o

Where Tweed and Teviot flow

My heart swells at the sight of

The beauty that’s Born in the Borders
O the green valleys, o

The green valleys, o
