Leon Jackson - Caledonia Lyrics

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 came from
And that's the reason I seem
So far away today.

So let me tell you that I love you
And I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me
And now I'm going home
And if I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had.

Now I've moved on and I've kept on moving
Proved the points that I kept on proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
And others on the way
And I've kissed the ladies and left them crying
Stolen dreams oh there's no denying
And I've travelled hard with my coat tails flying
Somewhere in the wind.

So let me tell you that I love you
And I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me
And now I'm going home
And if I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than
Caledonia you're the best friend I've ever had.


So let me tell you that I love you
And I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me
And now I'm going home
And if I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had.

Caledonia's been everything I've ever had.
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had.

  30. Sophie McDonald

    I'm proud to be Scottish, but I'm also proud to be British.

  31. JudgeJoker

    Yes, let's be proud that Britain is the only 'nation' on Earth to wipe out an entire nation (Tazmania) and forcefully colonized many other nations that didn't want it. Let's be proud that we're fighting an illegal war in Iraq because our Prime Ministers haven't had the backbone to stand up to America.

    Yeah, so much to be proud of there!

  32. Dylan McCabe

    Im proud to be called Scottish

  35. nakyer

    Figures. Mind your manners then, and stop being disruptive. You've a long way ahead of you, and you'd best start listening to people now, before you get yourself hurt.

  36. nakyer

    That's just about the type of response I'd have expected. What are YOU? Twelve?

    @TheAshbash87 He should. Leon Jackson's a Scot too.

  41. Ryan Laskey

    i live in england and im actually scottish so the message of this song really touches home.

  42. Tom Munro

    Well sung Leon, keep singing.

  43. Linda F

    @KiNGZeDDi3x - hear, hear......completely agree with you. I was born in Scotland but sincerely wish that Scotland remain part of the UK as I am British and proud of it. Stuff Alex Salmon and his mealy-mouthed wallies! Britain has a long and wonderful history, which Scotland has also played a major part in. All Britons should be proud of being British. There is nothing wrong with being patriotic towards our nation and to anyone who doesn't like it, then tough!

  44. shane skelly

    i have a scottish mate who sang this song 2 us i would be proud if i was scottish :)

  45. johnzsongs

    Scotland, a proud Nation and a great song.... and that's from an English man! and I got some great Scotts mates! see were not all twats!

  46. aoife scally


  47. Femmenition


    First; No. I won't "piss off".

    Second; Why should we remain dependent? I keep hearing "We can't go it alone!" and "We can't afford it!" But what I never hear is "Why" or "How". Why not go it alone? How can't we afford it? Simple fact is the only reason why is an unjust fear of the future. The cost? Don't make me laugh. We can afford it without London stealing our money. Independence is inevitable. Face it. Support it.

  48. Dean Stewart

    Scottish till i die :D mon i scots :)

  49. Femmenition

    Keep the true Scottish spirit alive, folks, and vote SNP! They're the only true Scottish party with a chance.

  50. alec clark

    Thumbs up if ur proud to be scottish

  51. Mairi Donald

    The idiots arguing on this sing are totally just ruining this song. So could you all shut up and stop moaning over stupid things because this is a good song that's suppost to make you feel proud to be Scottish and then you look down here and think well if this is what Scotlands like, what's there to be proud of....

  52. brittianica

    @parsmad I wish I could.

  53. Robert J. Williamson

    @TheRaulip - I notice you left the word "cunt2 on my channel and then blocked me so I can not respond and even ask why you wrote this, singling yourself out as not just foul mouthed but also a coward. Good luck with that.

  54. maxfarquhar

    Caledonia is another name for the northern part of Britain, hope this answers your question x ;).

  55. Ger Butler

  63. Femmenition

    @jsmith19810808 "Were" and "where" are seperate words. One is the past tense of "are" and the other is talking of a location.

  64. KSCrosby
