about

A version of Mary Webb's iconic The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen, released in collaboration with Aberdeen Football Club.

lyrics

When I was a lad, a tiny wee lad
My mither said tae me
Come see the Northern Lights my child
They're bright as they can be
She called them the heavenly dancers
Merry dancers in the sky
I'll never forget, that wonderful sight
They made the heavens bright

The northern lights of old Aberdeen
Mean home sweet home tae me
The northern lights of Aberdeen
Are what I long tae see
I've been a wanderer all o my life
Any many a sight I've seen
God speed the day when l'm on my way
To my home in Aberdeen

I've wandered in mony far-aff lands
And traivelled mony a mile
I've missed the folk I’ve cherished most
The joy o a friendly smile
It warms up the hairt o a wand'rer
The clasp of a welcomin hand
Tae greet me when, I return
Hame tae my native land

The northern lights of old Aberdeen
Mean home sweet home tae me
The northern lights of Aberdeen
Are what I long tae see
I've been a wanderer all o my life
Any monys the sight I've seen
God speed the day when l'm on my way
To my home in Aberdeen
