foot tapper for sure, moves well from start to finish, reminded me of a train ride. lyrically you tell a story well here. vocal suits the song well.

Lyrics

There's that silver city shining in the sun
laying by the grey North Sea beyond the river's run
to the sound of Marischal College bells ringing thru the town
I left my heart in Aberdeen with the lovely Heather Brown

She was just a schoolgirl then lord, but we were young
we didn't know what love was but we heard the song it sung
I was just a boy of seventeen apprenticed in the town
when I left my heart in Aberdeen with the lovely Heather Brown

Her hair was the colour of true love
her eyes as clear as water from a spring
her voice when she spoke was a ripple of laughter
oh, will I ever hear that sound again?

Many years have come and gone and I've played so many tunes
but loves first song's a fleeting bird
I'll capture one day soon
I swear I met her spirit once on a street in London Town
and I flew back to Aberdeen in the company of Heather Brown

Her hair was the colour of true love
her eyes as clear as water from a spring
her voice when she spoke was a ripple of laughter
oh, will I ever hear that sound again?

Sitting in the twilight now and I'm half a world away
she has her life and I got mine I guess there's nothing left to say
Ah but one day when the sun won't rise and the skies come rolling down
I swear that day, again I'll lay with the lovely Heather Brown
