Song For Ireland

Irish Song Lyrics - Song For IrelandAuthor: Phil and June Colclough
Copyright: Misty River Music Ltd 1982

Walking all the day near tall towers where falcons build their nests
Silver-winged they fly they know the call of freedom in their breasts
Saw Black Head against the sky where twisted rocks they run to the sea

Living on your western shore
Saw summer sunsets, asked for more
I stood by your Atlantic Sea
And sang a song for Ireland

Drinking all the day in old pubs where fiddlers love to play
Saw one touch the bow he played a reel which seemed so grand and gay
Stood on Dingle Beach and cast in wild foam we found Atlantic bass CHORUS

Talking all the day wth true friends who try to make you stay
Telling jokes and news singing songs to pass the time away
Watched the Galway salmon run like silver dancing, darting in the sun CHORUS

Dreaming in the night I saw a land where no one had to fight
Waking in your dawn I saw you crying in the morning light
Sleeping where the falcons fly they twist and turn all in your air-blue sky CHORUS
