GUEST,Shanty Kees Lyr Req: Silver Sands (or) No more Sailing (7) Lyr Req: Silver Sands (or) No more Sailing 11 Apr 07

I recently heard The McCalmans sing a (for them)new song. I'm not sure of the title, don't know who wrote it and if the words that I have are correct. Is there anybody who can help? Thanks in advance.
Here are words, as far as I know:

Silver sands on the horizon, through the wave we're homeward bound,
As the gulls wheel above us, and the wind makes no sound,
There's the harbour in the distance, and I dreamed of this day,
For I'll love no other, and here I will stay.

No more sailing, never more to foreign lands,
For my love's a-waitin' by yon silver sands of (Morah????),
And I never leave those high hills again,
And I never leave those high hills again.

When the first snows of winter lay on the ben,
I gave my promise to come back again
Oft the seas were so cruel and the winds were so high,
And oft times we thought boys that here we would die

Fare thee well to my companions, may we meet again,
Every hour brings us closer to my journey's end,
Now the sun sinks behind me and it's light bades the shore,
And I'll sing of Scotland, and wander no more.
