"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 CommentApparently the Mull of Kintyre is a European(?) landmark, similar to The Grand Canyon in the U.S. I'm not sure where it is.... Scotland, perhaps (that would explain the bagpipes).

    This was a big, BIG worldwide hit for Paul, but did very little on the U.S. singles charts.

    General CommentTo majestikmoose9 - How the hell can you hate this song??

    I remember when ma mother took me to Mull Of Kintyre, and she always sung that song to me at nite, to get me ta sleep.

    We were there when ma grandfather died.

    He had his funeral there.

    *sniff*

    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
    Dark Distant Mountains With Valleys Of Green.
    Past Painted Deserts The Sunset's 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 Time 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 to where my memories remain
    Flickering embers growing 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

    God bless ya

    Lyric CorrectionFar Have I Traveled And Much Have I Seen
    Dark Distant Mountains With Valleys Of Green.
    Past Painted Deserts The Son Sets On Fire
    As He Carries Me Home To The Mull Of Kintyre.

    "The Son sets on fire
    as He carries me home."

    Just an interpretation, but it would explain who the "He" is in that line.
