"Lost and Gone" as written by and Herbert Jansch....
What a bloody shame: lost and gone, the quietness of the rolling skerry
Having lost my home, no more to fish and swim in the Sule Skerry

Gone are the hills and the misty valleys; the pipeline's coming through
Gone are the streams where the salmon leaps; the pipeline's coming through

A city born, spreading over all; watch it take its hold
Like a barren tree, just a silhouette of black upon gold

Gone are the hills and the misty valleys; the pipeline's coming through
Gone are the streams where the salmon leaps; the pipeline's coming through

It's a bloody shame: eight thousand years of nature's mysterious ways
All torn apart and in her place the starkness of an industrial waste

Gone are the hills and the misty valleys; the pipeline's coming through
Gone are the streams where the salmon leaps; the pipeline's coming through
