Back home in County Antrim

Lyrics

I’m travelling down a country lane, homeward bound again
The autumn leaves are falling through the pouring rain
Happy times I can recall, turf fires burning bright
Thoughts of County Antrim are with me day and night

CHROUS
The Antrim glens are calling, calling me back home
The Antrim glen’s a lovely sight, no matter where I roam
Travel round the North Sea coast, walk down by the sea
The Antrim glens will always be home sweet home to me

Many times when far away, thoughts would cross my mind
The grass is always greener on the other side
So here am I back home again, home where I belong
Back in County Antrim is where I’ll sing my song
Chorus

So if you ever pass this way, don’t forget to call
You’ll meet friendly people and you’ll have a ball
Flowers bloom in sprinhtime. snowdrops in the spring
Autumn leads to winter, and hear the sleighbells ring
Chorus
