Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Caledon’Ere

Alton Mill from Pond

I don’t know if you can see the changes that have come over me
In these last few days I’ve been afraid that I might drift away
So I’ve been telling old stories, singing songs, that make me think about where I come from
That’s the reason why I seem so far away today.

CHORUS
Let me tell you that I love you and I think about you all the time
Caledon, ah you’re calling me and now I’m going home
But if I should become a stranger you know that it would make me more than sad
Caledon has been everything I’ve ever had.

I have moved and I’ve kept on moving, proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing, found others on the way
I have tried and I’ve kept on trying, stolen dreams, yes there’s no denying
I have travelled hard sometimes with conscience flying somewhere in the wind.

Repeat the CHORUS

Now I’m sitting here before the fire, the empty room, the forest choir
The flames that couldn’t get any higher, they’ve withered now they’ve gone
But I’m steady thinking, my way is clear and I know what I will do tomorrow
I’ll be back here in Caledon wondering why I stayed away so long.

Repeat the CHORUS.

Ode to Caledon by Ian Keith Anderson. With apologies to Dougie MacLean, composer of the song ‘Caledonia’
