Caladonia lyrics and chords by Dougie McClean and a hugh hit for Delores Keane also recorded by Celtic Woman. Recently recorded by Rapalje. Also by Irish country singer Nathan Carter.

I[G] don't know if[D] you can see
The [G]changes that have come [C]over me
In these[G] last few days I've[D] been afraid
That [G]I might drift a[C]way
I've been[G] telling old stories, [D]singing songs
That[G] make me think about[C] where I've come from
[G]That's the reason[D] why I seem
So[G] far away to[C]day

[G]Let me tell you [C]that I love you
That I[G] think about you[C] all the time
Cale[G]donia, you're calling me, now I'm going home
But if I should become a[C] stranger
Know that[G] it would make me[C] more than sad
Cale[G]donia's been everything I've[C] ever[G] had
Now I have moved and I've kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others on the way
I have kissed the fellas and left them crying
Stolen dreams, yes, there's no denying
I have traveled hard, sometimes with conscience flying
Somewhere with the wind
Now I'm sitting here before the fire
The empty room, the forest choir
The flames have cooled, don't get any higher
They've withered, now they've gone
But I'm steady thinking, my way is clear
And I know what I will do tomorrow
When hands have shaken, the kisses float
Then I will disappear
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had


The youtube video is by Dougie MacLean who is also the man who wrote the song. He wrote it while doing a spot of busking in Brittany with a couple of Irish fellas. If your a guitar player and want to play it like Dougie does, well he places capo on the 4th fret and plays open C Tuning  (CGCGCE) Copyright 1982 Plant Life Music Ltd
