Where Are You Now My Son

  • (John McCreadie)

    I'm thinking that you're growing, lad
    Where are you now, my son?
    I'm thinking that you're growing, lad
    Where are you now, my son?
    I'm thinking that you're growing, lad
    It's years since I saw your dad
    Where are you now, where are you now?
    Where are you now, my son?

    They said it was the best for you
    Where are you now, my son?
    They said it was the best for you
    Where are you now, my son?
    They said it was the best for you
    And the only thing that I could do
    Where are you now, where are you now?
    Where are you now, my son?

    They said you'd need a family
    Where are you now, my son?
    They said you'd need a family
    Where are you now, my son?
    They said you'd need a family
    And that you shouldnae stay wi' me
    Where are you now, where are you now?
    Where are you now, my son?

    I only wanted you to know
    Where are you now, my son?
    I only wanted you to know
    Where are you now, my son?
    I only wanted you to know
    Just how much I love you so
    I didn't want to let you go
    Where are you now, my son?

    (as sung by Sheena Wellington)
