Pibroch (Cap in Hand)
 
 

             Em          C   D                 Em
There's a light in the house in the wood in the valley.
            C           B7           Am
There's a thought in the head of the man.

        Em          C   D                           Em
Who carries his dreams like the coat slung on his shoulder,
              C           B7           Am
Bringing you love in the cap in his hand.
 

And each step he takes is one half of a lifetime:
no word he would say could you understand.
So he bundles his regrets into a gesture of sorrow,
Bringing you love cap in hand.
Catching breath as he looks through the dining-room window:
candle lit table for two has been laid.
Strange slippers by the fire.
Strange boots in the hallway.
Put my cap on my head.
I turn and walk away.
