Lovely Laois

Lyrics

CHORUS
Lovely Laois, I hear you calling
In my dreams I hear you say
Come back home to dear old Ireland
Lovely Laois, I’ll come back to you some day

Twenty years ago today since I first sailed away
And left my dear old home so far behind
But since that lonely journey, my heart has always yearned
My happy home in Laois, once more to find
Chorus

I still have pleasant memories of that old river Nore
I fished along your banks each summer day
Those memories, I still cherish from distant days of yore
The days of youth when I was young and gay
Chorus

The view from the Sliabh Bloom, dreams I can still see
A beauty just as grand as you will find
These are scenes from childhood, once more I will return
And meet those folk, those friends we had so fine
Chorus
