Combining my passions

As you may know, my other passion in life is music, especially singing and guitar. So just for fun, here's a little video of me combining my two passions. This song is one that is sung by one of the main characters in The Ransomed Returning, and is important to the plot. Here's a snippet from the book, so you'll understand:

The watcher turned to face the door, but he didn't leave.

"Isn't that why you're here?" Hannah asked. "To find out about this freedom I can offer you?"

"Of course not. You are a renegade. You don't have anything to offer me."

"I see."

The watcher did not move. He tipped his head back a little and a shudder ran through him. Hannah wondered if his master was speaking to him. The thought made her shudder as well.

A song popped into her head, and the Spirit stirred her heart. She spread her hands flat against the slab and closed her eyes and quietly began to sing. "Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling, from glen to glen and down the mountain side. The summer's gone and all the roses falling—"

He struck her, and her head cracked against the wall. "Do not sing in my presence," he said.

Pretty neat. I recall this song also sung in the movie "The Memphis Belle".
