Song Description

Visiting pubs and friends in Ireland.

Story Behind the Song

A visit to Ireland with fellow musicians.

Lyrics

1
Songs of the heart much older than I,
makes a man wander and not wonder why.
Land near the Shannon of heather and glen.
Searching for music and my dear old friends.

2
North to the wildwood and Sligo's dirt drone.
South to Killarney, O'Leary's old bones.
Mayfly and hook, fresh trout in a creel.
A lovely soft morning with dew on the fields

Chorus
Hold on to memory lest we forget.
Ireland's a circle where two circles met.
When I hear north winds that sound like a reel
Halfway to Doolin. That's how I feel

3
Tommy and Michael and Kenneth and Paul,
Eileen and Evy. I met with them all.
Chowder and brown bread much laughter about.
Bring on the whisky, and bring on the stout.

4
On through the night the turf burns ablaze.
The fiddler is weary. The dancers are dazed.
Let's have more music! Strathespey or Reel.
Once more with feeling; Toe tap and heel

Chorus

5
Yeats in a corner and Joyce just arrived.
O'Connor's been drinking. These ghosts are alive.
Who built the stone church so long ago?
Saint Patrick's parish? Could it be so?
