Subject: Lyr Add: FIONA AND SHANE
Dear Wolfgang,

Thank you again--I corrected the lyrics you were unsure of--I could still remember them after all this time...It's wonderful to have a complete set again! If I get time to write the arrangement I'll try and send you a copy. This will be slow going, since I'm still getting used to Finale. If anyone else knows how to contact Anne Byrne, please let me know, so we can maintain her copyright. Thank you!

FIONA AND SHANE

The swaying pines of eventide,
The blue sky up above
All voices hushed and silent now
Fiona dreams of love

Her heart is filled with grief and fear
Her dreams they are all in vain
She listens to the westwind's sigh
And dreams that it speaks to her of Shane.

Chorus: Fiona, oh Fiona,
the westwind whispers plain;
Fiona, oh Fiona,
I bring love greetings from Shane.

Shane is betrothed to another love
He tries to be true and kind
He'll not look in Fiona's pale green eyes
His love for her he just can't seem to hide.

One day she went to the forest green
she could not longer bear to stay
in silence now she roams the woods
and the green pines sing all the way

Chorus

One day he went to the forest green
in search of wild deer and game
a young girl smiling with pale green eyes
starts to speak to young Shane.

His heart remembered his love so true
he tried but he failed to explain
in silence now he roams the woods
and the westwinds speak to Shane:

Last chorus: Fiona, oh Fiona
her love was without a stain
Fiona, oh Fiona,
oh you never love another, poor Shane,
Fiona, Fiona, Fiona.
