Bells on the Hill 
(G. Gothard, W. Gothard, S. Gothard) 
Solana Gothard: lead vocals, whistle, bodhran, snare, steel drum 
Willow Gothard: lead violin, mandolin, vocals 
Greta Gothard: guitar, bass, keys, vocals 


Verse 1
He’s out at sea, sailing through the teal blue water 
The ocean breeze carries him so far 

He’s out at sea, cutting through the ice blue water 
Through deepest night, he’s steering by a star 

The bells on the hill are ringing out loud

Ring for our sailors, they’re coming home now 

The sun fills the warm sand, the waves touch the shore 
As my sailor comes home to me 

Verse 2

He writes to me, treasures from a far-off island 
Of wondrous things I’ve never seen before 

He writes to me, cities castles wild and unknown 

The gifts he’ll bring, from a foreign shore 


Verse 3
He promised me, he will be coming home tomorrow 

So there I’ll be, watching from the cove 
He promised me, he’s running down the ramp tomorrow 

So there I’ll be, to bring him home with me
