Lyrics

…many things have I seen
Since I left my old home on this island of green
From London to Boston and wherever I roam
Sure I long to return to my Clonmany home

How joyful and [...] that we all sang
I drove round Clonmany so happy and content
In hazel wood meadows I oft walked alone
Amid the scenes of contentment near my Clonmany home

There are bright lights of London are pretty to see
This […] are so grand to me
But that change of never more for to roam
And take the road northward to my Clonmany home

See the tall […] there, where this holy array
Looks down on the chapel where we all went to pray
And the Clonmany river rolls out to the foam
Among the green hillsides near my Clonmany home

Farewell to the lone and the kind folks I once knew
With some sad stories hearts kind and true
Someday I’ll wander back home across the foam
And take the road northwards to my Clonmany home

Now the bright lights of London are pretty to see
This […] are so grand to me
Some day I’ll wander back home across the foam
And take the road northward to my Clonmany home
