A man writes letters to his home town from far away.

Story Behind the Song

We rescued this song from the dusty archives as we wrote it in the mid '90's when the band was performing in Boston. An earlier recorded version of the song sung by David Marlowe never made it onto a CD so we used that arrangement as the framework for

Lyrics

Dear old dirty Dublin
I'm getting on quite well
I was never one for writing
Hopin' all is well
The people here are friendly
The stories I could tell
When everything is said and done
I'm missing you like hell.

Dear old dirty Dublin
Things are changing fast
I'm finally making money
I hope this luck'll last
And how's me family keeping
I'm ashamed I have to ask
Tell them that I'll be with them
Before the year is past

Dear old dirty Dublin
It's really been too long
The time for me to go is close
I must be getting on

Dear old dirty dublin It's really been a while
I'm told me da has passed away
And buried irish style
Me ma she must be lonely
With little cause to smile
I really wish I could be there
If it weren't for all these miles

Dear old dirty Dublin
I know you wonder why
This letter's long in coming
It's hard but let me try
The doctors say I haven't long
I feel like I should cry
But I'm happy to be coming home
Even though it's for goodbyes

Dear old dirty Dublin
You're always on my mind
The boys I played with back in school
The girl I left behind
Memories bring me joy and pain
But memories always do
The one I choose to to take with me
Is the friend I've had in you

Dear old dirty Dublin
It's really been too long
The time for me to go is close
I must be getting on
