Among the Wicklow hills

Lyrics

I just received a letter from my home in Ireland
The scribble so familiar; t’was my mother’s feeble hand
A house that rang with music and with laughter now is still
Dear Danny, it’s so lonely now among the Wicklow hills

Chorus
As I gaze across the mountains, I relive a moment’s joy
The same old Wicklow mountains where you rambled as a boy
Your photo as a child; that picture’s by my bedside still
And each night I pray that you’ll come back home among the Wicklow hills

Do you remember long ago when in Summer, you would stroll
Down where the crystal mountain streams to the Slaney’s water roll
Do you recall your young companion who talks about you still
And you know who she’s waiting for among the Wicklow hills

Chorus
As I gaze across the mountains, I relive a moment’s joy
The same old Wicklow mountains where you rambled as a boy
Your photo as a child; that picture’s by my bedside still
And each night I pray that you’ll come back home among the Wicklow hills
