Red Flames

Written by Barbara Nesbitt

Produced and Arranged by Mark Addison

Barbara sang and played acoustic guitar

Mark played bouzouki, acoustic guitar, telecaster, bass, MicroOrgan, virtual strings and percussion.

 

This song was written during pandemic lock down and I was missing my motherland, Scotland, so much.  I tried to go every year in before times.  It was raining this day and I opened the windows and started playing my guitar.  This love song for a place in the world and in my heart came right out.  Later, Mark Addison heard me play it on a livestream and (easily) convinced me to come over to his studio and record.  He turned it into something so special, and etherial, and it brings goosebumps to my skin and tears to my eyes with every listen. We hope you like it.

Magpie flyin’ by

Thinkin about you

Lost on Isle of Skye

Thinkin’ about you

A million miles away

But you’re right here every day

 

Whiskey, north sea

Thinkin about you

Green tea, oak tree

Thinkin about you

A million miles away

But you’re right here every day

 

Red flames in your hair

Blues, blue oceans in your eyes

 

Scottish lane, summer rain

Thinkin’ about you

Dirty jokes on the Belmond train

Thinkin’ about you

A million miles away

But you’re right here every day

 

Inst.

 

Past is past, hold fast

Thinkin’ about you

The spell forever cast

Thinkin’ about you

A million miles away

but you’re right here every day

 

Red flames in your hair

Blue, blue oceans in your eyes

 

Magpie flyin’ by

Thinkin’ bout you
