Back to Castleblaney

Lyrics

I said farewell to dear old Dad and kissed my Mother goodbye
Then turned away before they’d see the tears form in my eyes
Along the winding leafing lanes where in childhood we would play
with heartache and old memories, I sadly made my way

So many folks have left their homes through strife and poverty
Yet somehow we could struggle by just Mother, Dad and me
But things went wrong between me and the girl I called my own
And I left Castleblaney, my own people and my home

The harbor lights are fading now as I leave this foreign shore
And I watch the dark horizon that I mean to see no more
To the land that holds the legends of the fairy and the goone
Going back to Castleblaney, my own people and my home
