Erin Hay - Goodbye Ireland Lyrics


(Lonnie Ratliff / Jim Carter)

The moment's drawing nearer now and I know this means more than most goodbyes
I linger on familiar scenes, it's like looking through a stranger's eyes
I'm no vagabond traveller in my heart you hold all that I hold dear
In my soul I feel the famine and on my face I feel an emerald tear

(Chorus)
Goodbye Ireland I must sail across this ocean alone
Knowing time's a silent thief knowing should I never see you again
An emptiness shall follow me til my life's end
Goodbye Ireland

The ship lies in the harbor now and the captain he'll not wait for nary man
Tis fair the well I must be saying then quickly I will go while I still can
There's a new world waiting for me and I go in search of something that we've lost
Please say that you'll forgive me for my heart's too weak to bare a heavy cross

(Chorus)
Goodbye Ireland I must sail across this ocean alone
Knowing time's a silent thief knowing should I never see you again
An emptiness shall follow me til my life's end
Goodbye Ireland

Goodbye Ireland will I ever see you again

[Thanks to Lonnie Ratliff for lyrics]
