The Pain of Yesterday ©

Rembering a disaster that befell the town and a family who lived not far from me in the Miner's Scheme

Jim McRobert
Edinburgh, Scotland
2005

I met a lass in Campbel-town
That lass she smiled at me-ee
We talked and talked for many an hour
I knew that she was free

That lass, my lass became my love
Agreed wed never part
I lived to hear the words she spoke
I knew she had my heart

Chorus:
The pain with tears that washed my face
Now shes gone away
Died in fire in our steel house
Twas like yes-tir-day

I kissed my lass at her front door
Before I went to work
Despite the wind and rain about
I wondered at my luck

Chorus:

Wedded we within the Church
Took our Sacred Vow
Promised Id take care of her
What can I do now

Chorus:
The pain with tears that washed my face
Now shes gone away
Died in fire in our wee house
Twas like yes-tir-day

The pain of yes-tir-day
