Paddy Reilly, The Fields of Athenry.

The Fields of Athenry

The Dubliners

By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young girl calling
“Michael, they have taken you away
For you stole Trevelyan’s corn
So the young might see the morn
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay”

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It’s so lonely ’round the fields of Athenry

By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young man calling
“Nothing matters, Mary, when you’re free
Against the famine and the crown
I rebelled, they cut me down
Now you must raise our child with dignity”

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It’s so lonely ’round the fields of Athenry

By a lonely harbour wall
She watched the last star falling
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
For she lived in hope and pray
For her love in Botany Bay
It’s so lonely ’round the fields of Athenry

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It’s so lonely ’round the fields of Athenry

Lyrics

I have seen, seen it all in paper dreams
Watched it all full on the screen
But never understood
I have heard, have heard you speak a million words
Now you’re talking to me first
Never thought you would

Oh, my, my, you just took me by surprise
And I can’t believe my eyes
Oh, I must be seeing blind
Oh no, my, you are too good to be all mine
Now I’m looking in your eyes
Oh, I must be seeing blind

I was young, my heart was always on the run
But you made lovin’ fun
I never knew it could be, ey
I see you from a different point of view
Feel it’s too good to be true
I found my missing piece

Oh, my, my, you just took me by surprise
And I can’t believe my eyes
Oh, I must be seeing blind
Oh no, my, you are too good to be all mine
Now I’m looking in your eyes
Oh, I must be seeing blind
Oh, no

Oh, my, my
When I look into your eyes
It’s a sight I can’t describe
Oh, I must be seeing blind

Oh, my, my, you just took me by surprise
And I can’t believe my eyes
Oh, I must be seeing blind
Oh no, my, you are too good to be all mine
Now I’m looking in your eyes
Oh, I must be seeing blind
Oh, I must be seeing blind

Songs of Ireland – Brian Dunphy – Cavan Girl

SONY DSC

As I walk the road from Killeshandra weary I sat down
For it’s twelve long miles around the lake to get to Cavan Town
Though Oughter and the road I go once seemed beyond compare
Now I curse the time it takes to reach my Cavan girl so fair

The autumn shades are on the leaves, the trees will soon be bare
Each red-coat leaf around me seems the colour of her hair
My gaze retreats to find my feet and once again I sigh
As the broken pools of sky remind me of the colour of her eyes

At the Cavan cross each Sunday morning, where she can be found
And she seems to have the eye of every boy in Cavan Town
If my luck will hold I’ll have the golden summer of her smile
And to break the hearts of Cavan men she’ll talk to me a while

So next Sunday evening finds me homeward – Killeshandra bound –
To work the week till I return to court in Cavan Town
When asked if she would be my bride, at least she’d not say no
So next Sunday morning I’ll rouse myself and back to her I’ll go

As I walk the road from Killeshandra weary I sat down
For it’s twelve long miles around the lake to get to Cavan Town
Though Oughter and the road I go once seemed beyond compare
Now I curse the time it takes to reach my Cavan girl so fair
Now I curse the time it takes to reach my Cavan girl so fair

If I Ever Needed Someone

Van Morrison

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You

See me through the daytime
(See me through the daytime)
And through the long, lonely night
Lead me through the darkness
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) And on into the light

To stand with me when I’m troubled
(Stand with me when I’m troubled)
And help me through my strife
At times, get so uncertain, I turn to You
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) Turn to You in my young life

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You

Someone to hold on to
(Someone to hold to)
And keep me from all fear
Someone to be my guiding light
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) And keep me ever dear

To keep me from all my selfishness
(Keep me from all selfishness)
To keepin’ me from all my sorrow
To lead me onto givingness
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) So I can see a new tomorrow

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You

Someone to walk with
Oh, someone to hold by the hand
Someone to talk with
Someone to understand
Eh (yeah)
Yeah (yeah)To call on when I need You
(Call on when I need You)
And I need You very much
To open up my arms to You
(Feel Your tender touch) Feel Your tender touch

To feel it and to keep it
(Feel it and keep it)
Tuck it right here in my soul (yeah-yeah)
And care for it and keep it with me
(Never, never to grow old) Never to grow old

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
One more time again
Lord, if I ever needed, needed someone, I need You
Lord, oh, if I ever needed someone, I need You

Flicker

 
When you feel your love’s been taken
When you know there’s something missing
In the dark, we’re barely hanging on
Then you rest your head upon my chest
And you feel like there ain’t nothing left
I’m afraid that what we had is gone
 
Then I think of the start
And it echoes a spark
And I remember the magic electricity
Then I look in my heart
There’s a light in the dark
Still a flicker of hope that you first gave to me
That I wanna keep
Please don’t leave
Please don’t leave
 
When you lay there and you’re sleeping
Hear the patterns of your breathing
And I tell you things you’ve never heard before
Asking questions to the ceiling
Never knowing what you’re thinking
I’m afraid that what we had is gone
 
Then I think of the start
And it echoes a spark
And I remember the magic electricity
Then I look in my heart
There’s a light in the dark
Still a flicker of hope that you first gave to me
That I wanna keep
Please don’t leave
Please don’t leave
 
And I want this to pass
And I hope this won’t last
Last too long
 
Then I think of the start
And it echoes a spark
And I remember the magic electricity
Then I look in my heart
There’s a light in the dark
Still a flicker of hope that you first gave to me
That I wanna keep
Please don’t leave
Please don’t leave
