"Mull Of Kintyre" as written by and Paul Mccartney Denny Laine....
Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Far have I traveled and much have I seen
Darkest of mountains with valleys of green
Past painted deserts the sun sets on fire
As he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen
Carry me back to the days I knew then
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
Of the life and the times of the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain
Still take me back where my memories remain
Flickering embers go higher and higher
As they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre

    General CommentThis song is about a head of land on the end of Kintyre peninsula of Scotland. The tune was borrowed from an old Scottish melody. Paul was challenged as a bet to write a number on song with a bagpipe solo. This was it.

    Paul used to live very close by in Machrihanish with Linda to get away from the Beatles hysteria. I drove there in 2002 - after reaching Machrihanish, you drive up a long one way country road through hills and grazing rams until you reach a deadend and a sign. Then you can walk down to the mull and look out onto the ocean. (Bring your raincoat)

    Its very peaceful down that part of Scotland and it's an area not promoted by the Scottish Tourist Board. Was quite a powerful experience for me being there - was like being in a dreamland that existed in my childhood memories.
