Auld Lang Syne 
Should auld acquaintance be forgot 
and never brought to mind? 
Should auld acquaintance be forgot 
and days of auld lang syne? 
For auld lang syne, my dear, 
for auld lang syne, 
we'll take a cup of kindness yet, 
for auld lang syne. 

Should auld acquaintance be forgot 
and never brought to mind? 
Should auld acquaintance be forgot 
and days of auld lang syne? 
And here's a hand, my trusty friend 
And gie's a hand o' thine 
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet 
For auld lang syne

  9. Thanks for the music, Nick. I know how much work this must have been!

    It's amazing how music can transport one to other places.

    Early Morning Rain took me back to a cold winter in Arkansas when I was a poor, but happy young newlywed. Many smiles...

    May we all create peace and kindness in 2009.

  15. It was so good to "meet" you Nick when our blogs came to a standstill.

    Here Comes the Sun by George Harrison ..... I just LOVE that song. (And My Sweet Lord which reminds me of living in Devon with friends who gave me the record at the time).

    With good wishes for 2009. Sandie
