My Town
Glass Tiger Lyrics


Bring the wind to carry me over
Lead me home to my town
Tell me when that breeze is blowin'
Takin' me home to my town

When I think of you, Scotia
There's a love that just bleeds in my heart
In my childhood days, we went our different ways
But you knew that we'd never part
Now I'm all alone
And your calling me home
You knew our love could never die
And though my roaming eyes always lead me astray
Well I'm coming back home
Scotia, don't walk away

Bring the wind to carry me over
Lead me home to my town
Tell me when that breeze is blowin'
Takin' me home to my town

So when I think of you, Scotia
There's a magic that fills the air
We're the downtown boys
Making all that noise
Oh, we live like we just don't care

So we drank our fill
For king and country
Yeah, 'til the last soldier fell
Berlington Bertie, you're in my heart forever
I want to drown in the stories you tell

Bring the wind to carry me over
Lead me home to my town
Tell me when that breeze is blowin'
Takin' me home to my town

Oh, to my town
You made me all
I can't ever be
If I should fall
Your love will rescue me

Bring the wind to carry me over
Lead me home to my town
Tell me when that breeze is blowin'
Takin' me home to my town

Bring the wind to carry me over (carry me over)
Lead me home to my town (to my town)
Tell me when that breeze is blowin'
Takin' me home to my town

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Carry me over
Lead me home to my town (to my town)
Tell me when that breeze is blowin'
Takin' me home to my town

Bring the wind to carry me over
Lead me home to my town (to my town)
Tell me when that breeze is blowin'
Takin' me home to my town

Huge fan - can't believe it's 27 years since release of "My Town" and still sounds fresh like a breeze right from the 80's ;-)

I LOVE this Canadian classic. Sometimes, I feel like I'm living in Scotland when I'm living here in Nova Scotia. Obviously,what's missing is that rich Scottish accent, and we drive on the right side of the road instead of the left. But I love listening to this song even though I'm not Scottish, and yet, I'm living in New Scotland (or Nova Scotia in Latin).

@Todd Linton The start of the song is actually in Greenock, on the Esplanade, hence the reference to James Watt...

Am from Elora Ontario Canada. But I am Scottish and this song is shot in Glasgow Scotland. Right beside my family's home..

Dave Slater

I agree, the version of this with Rod Stewart is the best I have heard.
BTW, here in Saskatchewan we drive on "what's LEFT of the roads".. LOL

Growing up in Nova Scotia, Canada I always heard of Glass Tiger and heard their songs on the radio. Never paid much attention to them and thought they were an 80's band trying to hold on to the remaining fame. A few years ago they came and played at an outdoor festival which I attended. Allen Frew introduced this song and talked about the meaning behind it and described how it is only fitting to sing it here in Nova Scotia. I never listened to the lyrics before, but I was blown away. What a performance. Now every time I listen to it I get a little choked up. I am forever a fan now.
