about

My earliest memory is the silhouette of a man in a cap at our front door. I was about 18 months old. I never encountered my maternal grandfather again. He was from Oban.

lyrics

SILHOUETTE

There he was in silhouette
At the wide open front door
Of a house I barely knew
At 25 I was too young
But I saw his silhouette at the front door

We’d been called upon
By the knife sharpener
I was playing on the floor
His call was answered
And I saw his silhouette at the front door

The poor man was sent packing
Then reality set in
The man who loved the little girl
Had taken his leave again
And I saw his silhouette at the front door

Siblings in their summer clothes
Went running after him
With a precious gift of half a crown
John Baird was never seen again
I saw his silhouette at the front door
I saw his silhouette at the front door
I saw his silhouette
I saw his silhouette
I saw his silhouette at the front door
