1"O Mary, go and call the cattle home,

2And call the cattle home,

3And call the cattle home

4Across the sands of Dee";

5The western wind was wild and dank with foam,

6And all alone went she.

7The western tide crept up along the sand,

8And o'er and o'er the sand,

9And round and round the sand,

10As far as eye could see.

11The rolling mist came down and hid the land:

12And never home came she.

13"Oh! is it weed, or fish, or floating hair--

14A tress of golden hair,

15A drownèd maiden's hair

16Above the nets at sea?

17Was never salmon yet that shone so fair

18Among the stakes on Dee."

19They rowed her in across the rolling foam,

20The cruel crawling foam,

21The cruel hungry foam,

22To her grave beside the sea:

23But still the boatmen hear her call the cattle home

24Across the sands of Dee.

I am a collector of vintage recordings from the 1905 to 1935 era, one of which is a 1928 Victor Red Seal record of Sands of Dee as set to music (I will find out who did those honors) and sung by baritone Reinald Werrenrath (1883-1953). As with many art song recordings, the orchestra complements the singer, and a mere piano accompaniment wouldn\'t do the music justice. This is the sort of 78 RPM treasure that validates record collecting as a hobby, as there are no modern recordings of this lovely song available in any format, at least that I am aware of. If you have an interest in hearing this touching ballad, write to me at

the true romantic subject full of mystics as in the notorious folklore German story of Loreley.

Mary was a little girl who was asked to bring the cattle home, which had gone away for grazing. she went out of the house alone calling out to them. Dusk was falling by then and the day was stormy and dark, tides were rising. As soon as she landed on the shores of Dee to reach the land on the other side, mist covered her eyes. she couldn\'t even see where the land lay and ultimately the sea pulled her in. Her body was discovered later by the fishermen who went to catch salmon in the sea. They found her by her shining golden tresses and brought her to the shore where her grave lasts till this day. but even now, when the fishermen walk along those shores in search of fish, they can hear Mary\'s frantic call to call the cattle home.
