Highlander: the series

By The Shores Of Loch Shiel


Loch Shiel, Scotland

There's a Clan MacLeod legend
That some swear is real
In the town of Glenfinnan
By the shores of Loch Shiel

Once the clan members lived there
So proud, brave and strong
In the highlands of Scotland
Right where they belonged

That's where Kanwulf the Viking
His own fate did seal
When he killed the Chieftain
By the shores of Loch Shiel

Oh the clan felt great anger
As they mourned for their Chief
That his death should be avenged
Was their strong belief

And his wife in great anguish
By his bedside did kneel
And wept in the darkness
By the shores of Loch Shiel

But the son of the Chieftan
Who fell in battle they say
Now returned from the dead
To fight one more day

With a heart full of sorrow
And his father's own steel
Sure he challenged the Viking
By the shores of Loch Shiel

Tho' the axe used by Kanwulf
Had been forged by the Gods
It was soon claimed and buried
In the Highland's green sods

But the son of the Chieftan
Was welcome no more
And so he left his home
By the loch's peaceful shore

Oh the Clan MacLeod legend
Has eternal appeal
In the town of Glenfinnan
By the shores of Loch Shiel
