Road home

Lyrics

Sing a hymn of freedom
Fling the banner high
Sing the songs of Liberty
Songs that shall not die

For the long, long road to Tipperary
Is the road that leads me home
O’er hills and plains, by lakes and lanes
My woodlands, My cornfields
My Country, My Home

In the quiet hours
Of the starry night
Dream the dreams of far away
Home fires burning bright

For the long, long road to Tipperary
Is the road that leads me home
O’er hills and plains, by lakes and lanes
My woodlands, My cornfields
My Country, My Home
