Irish Song Lyrics - Wind in the Willows (Bread and Fishes)Author: Alan Bell

As I went a walking
one morning in spring
I met with some travelers
in an old country lane
One was an old man
the 2nd a maid
The 3rd was a young boy
who smiled as he said

With the wind in the willows
and the birds in the sky
We've a bright sun to warm us
wherever we lie
We have bread and fishes
and a jug of red wine
to share on our journey
with all of mankind

I sat down beside them
the flowers all around
and we ate on a mantel
spread out on the ground
They told me of prophets
and princes and kings
and they spoke of the one God
Who knows everything CHORUS

I asked them to tell me
their name and their race
So I might remember
their kindness and grace
My name is Joseph
This is Mary my wife
and this is our young son
Our pride and delight CHORUS

We traveled the whole world
by land and by sea
To tell all the people
how they might be free Chorus
