Proclaimers', "Letter from America"
The Lyrics:
When you go will you send back
A letter from America?
Take a look up the railtrack
From Miami to Canada
[...] The way you felt the day you sailed
From Wester ross to Nova Scotia
[...] Lochaber no more
Sutherland no more
Lewis no more
Skye no more
[...]
Bathgate no more
Linwood no more
Methil no more
Irvine no more
Why:
America, Miami, Canada and Nova Scotia, and the Scottish places of Lochaber, Sutherland, Lewis, (the Isle of) Skye, Bathgate, Linwood, Methil and Irvine. The song is about Scottish emigrants to the North America.
