Thread Name: Lyr/Origin Req: Twilight Is Stealing / ...Falling
Subject: RE: Lyr/Origin Req: Twilight Is Stealing
It is interesting to see the slight differences in the printed versions above. We got to the point where we had forgotten some of the words and probably improvised.

The first verse our family sang went like this

Twilight is stealing, soft oer the sea
Shadows are falling soft oer the lea
Gone are the night winds, gone from the shore
Gone to return no more.
