Caledonia - Lyrics
I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
In these last few days
I've been afraid
That I might drift away
So I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I came from
And that's the reason why I seem
So far away today
Oh, but let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me
And now I'm going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everythingI've ever had
Caledonia is the Latin name for Scotland and in Scots is now the romantic or poetic name for this great country.
