In 1887 my Grandfather Joe Norman was born in Falsterbo Lighthouse. It was a stormy night and the water was so high that the midwife had to row a boat to get there.
I never met my Granddad, he died in 1966. I have wanted to write a song about this for long time.
To honor him, all the sailors and the fishermen who have had the Lighthouse on the Falsterbo beach, as their guiding light throughout the centuries.
