Coming Back To Milltown

Irish Song Lyrics - Coming Back To Milltown

As I sit and dream in Boston, beneath the starry sky
memories keep crowing of the times I was a boy
a barefoot tappy lad was I on the wide, wide streets of home
a carefree lad with friends galore, I was a fool to roam

and now I comin' back to Milltown
in a week I will be there
back to the friends I loved so well
in my dear old County Clare
I love the friends and neighbors
and I'll drink with all the boys
I long to see the sadness
leave my dear mother's eyes

Now my mother she had raised me, on her own since I was three
and it nearly broke her kindly heart when I sailed across the sea
but I was young in those far off days all I wanted was to roam
I didn't mind the sadness that I caused to those back home CHORUS

Now in Quilty there's a beauty, and her name it is Eileen
I know that she'll be waiting, waiting there for me
so no more I'll go a rovin', in Milltown I will stay
and I'll wed my dark eyed beauty, right away CHORUS
