In Aberdeen

I left my heart in Aberdeen,
The city by the sea,
Where stones are gray
And gulls do play
And still the shipmen feel the sway
Of boats just come from sea.
I found my love in Aberdeen;
Her heart she gave to me.
We shared a drink,
Our lips did link,
And it took us to the very brink
Of the best that love can be.
I dreamt a dream in Aberdeen
Of a land beyond the sea—
Where another lass
Might fill my glass
With a surer love that would surpass
The city by the sea.
I left it all in Aberdeen,
The city by the sea—
My former sin
And all I’d been,
My name, my clan, and all my kin,
To seek a newer me.
