Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, 3 octaves, level 2, 2020, Sheet Music Plus

A song by the rock band Wings written by Sir Paul McCartney and Denny Laine. The song was written in tribute to the picturesque Kintyre peninsula in Scotland and its headland, the Mull of Kintyre, where Paul McCartney has owned High Park Farm since 1966. The song was Wings' biggest hit in Britain where it became the 1977 Christmas number one, remaining at number 1 for 9 weeks, and was the first single to sell over two million copies nationwide. It is one of the best-selling singles of all time in the United Kingdom.

The lyrics of the first verse, also used as the repeating chorus, are an ode to the area's natural beauty and sense of home:

Mull of Kintyre

Oh mist rolling in from the sea,

My desire

Is always to be here

Oh Mull of Kintyre

Paul said that it was a love song really, about how he enjoyed being there and imagining he was travelling away and wanting to get back there.
