THE UNION CANAL Lyrics And Guitar Chords. 4/4 (Robin Laing)

Chorus
(D)Fountainbridge to Falkirk, (G)over Almon(D)dell
By Ratho and Linlithgow weaves a magic (A)spell
(D)Fountainbridge to Falkirk, (G)over Almon(D)dell
Fol(G)low the (D)windings of the U(A)nion Ca(D)nal
Fol(G)low the (D)windings of the U(A)nion Ca(D)nal

As a (D)child I was enchanted by (G)swans among the (D)reeds
Tadpoles in my jamjar, minnows in the (A)weed
(D)Gazing from the towpath (G)on my hands and (D)knees
Sunlight (G)on the (D)water, the wind in the (A)willow (D)trees

(D)Thinking on those early days, (G)I was always (D)there
Swinging out on Tarzan ropes, drop in for a (A)dare
(D)Summer was the magic time, but (G)Winter had its (D)day
Skating (G)on the (D)ice until the daylight (A)slipped a(D)way

Chorus

The (D)Union is a quiet place, a (G)relic from the (D)past
See the old stone bridges, they were made to (A)last
It's (D)just a sad backwater, (G)lazy, deep and (D)slow
A sleepy (G)road that (D)used to be a (A)moving picture (D)show

For (D)once the traffic pulsed along, a (G)beat that had no (D)rest
Lifeline for the Lothians, a gateway to the (A)West
(D)Passengers by the thousands, (G)scows of coal and (D)grain
The Union (G)carried (D)everything be(A)fore the railways (D)came

Chorus

A (D)casualty of progress, (G)stranded high and (D)dry
The Union was discarded, left to waste and (A)die
(D)Broken and neglected, (G)falling to de(D)cay
All those (G)weary (D)Winter days, (A)lonely, cold and (D)grey

Those (D)winter years are past now,the (G)water feels the (D)sun
The fight against the brambles and silting up is (A)won
(D)Narrow boats and barges (G)steer the old ca(D)nal
Slipping (G)through the (D)countryside that (A)I have loved so w(D)ell
Chorus
