Oh ho soon shall I see them,
Oh he ho see them, oh see them;
Oh ho ro soon shall I see them,
The mist covered mountains of home.

There I shall visit the place of my birth,
And they'll give me a welcome
to the warmest on earth;
All so loving and kind, full of music and mirth,
In the sweet sounding language of home.

Oh ho soon shall I see them,
Oh he ho see them, oh see them;
Oh ho ro soon shall I see them,
The mist covered mountains of home.

There I shall gaze on the mountains again,
On the fields and the woods
and the burns and the glens;
And away 'mong the corries beyond human ken,
In the haunts of the deer I shall roam.

Hail to the mountains with summits of blue,
To the glens with their meadows
of sunshine and dew;
To the women and men ever constant and true,
Ever ready to welcome one home.

Oh ho soon shall I see them,
Oh he ho see them, oh see them;
Oh ho ro soon shall I see them,
The mist covered mountains of home.

####.... John Allan Cameron [1938-2006] ....####
