The Great Silkie!

"I AM A MAN UPON THE LAND,

I AM A SILKIE ON THE SEA"

 

If you have the time follow the link to hear this traditional Scottish Ballad which explains all: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbhFlt0cRcs

 

The ballad has been covered by many artists including Joan Baez but for me this is the best!

 

The lyrics are availabe here:
