C               G
Walking all the day
   Dm   Am           F       G           C
By tall towers where falcons build their nests
C                    G
In silver wings they fly,
     Dm       Am      F       G        C
they know the call of freedom in their breasts,
F                          G
saw Black Head against the sky
      C       Am    F        C      G
Where twisted rocks run down to the sea
F                      G
Living on your Western shore,
    C                           G
Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
  F             C        G
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
    Dm     Am       F G C
And sang a song for Ireland


Drinking all the day,
In old pubs where fiddlers love to play,
Saw one touch the bow,
He played a reel which seemed so grand and gay,
I stood on Dingle Beach and cast,
In wild foam we found Atlantic bass,
Living on your Western shore,
Saw summer sunset, asked for more,
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
And sang a song for Ireland


Laughing all the day,
With true friends who try to make you stay,
Telling jokes and news,
And singing songs to pass the night away,
We watched the Galway salmon run,
Like silver dancing, darting in the sun,
Living on your Western shore,
Saw summer sunset, I asked for more,
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
And sang a song for Ireland


Dreaming in the night,
I saw a land where no one had to fight,
And waking in your dawn,
I saw you crying in the morning light,
Lying where the falcons fly,
They twist and turn all in your air-blue sky,
Living on your western shore,
Saw summer sunset, I asked no more,
I stood by your Atlantic sea,
And sang a song for Ireland


hope you enjoy!!!!
