Fw: Looky what I found

Title: Clear Day
Words to "Lord of the Dance"   Scottish tune.........sounds great with pipes.......


Haven't heard this one in awhile..........Dorothy Gifford

  1. I danced in the morning
    When the world was begun,
    And I danced in the moon
    And the stars and the sun,
    And I came down from heaven
    And I danced on the earth,
    At Bethlehem
    I had my birth.

    Dance, then, wherever you may be,
    I am the Lord of the Dance, said he,
    And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be,
    And I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he

  2. I danced for the scribe
    And the pharisee,
    But they would not dance
    And they wouldn't follow me.
    I danced for the fishermen,
    For James and John -
    They came with me
    And the dance went on.

  3. I danced on the Sabbath
    And I cured the lame;
    The holy people
    Said it was a shame.
    They whipped and they stripped
    And they hung me on high,
    And they left me there
    On a Cross to die.

  4. I danced on a Friday
    When the sky turned black -
    It's hard to dance
    With the devil on your back.
    They buried my body
    And they thought I'd gone,
    But I am the dance,
    And I still go on.

  5. They cut me down
    And I leapt up high;
    I am the life
    That'll never, never die;
    I'll live in you
    If you'll live in me -
    I am the Lord
    Of the Dance, said he.
