Sweet Castleisland

Lyrics

Sweet Castleisland, so dear to me
In that green valley I’d long to be
Down by the Maine I’d love to roam
In Castleisland, my home, sweet home

I’m an exile far, far away
On foreign shores I earn my pay
Each day I dream the day will come
That I’ll be there when old songs are sung

Sweet Castleisland, so dear to me
In that green valley I’d long to be
Down by the Maine I’d love to roam
In Castleisland, my home, sweet home

Now the boat is waiting, I’m on my way
Back home to Kerry, that’s where I’ll stay
My ramblings over, no more I’ll roam
From Castleisland my home, sweet home

Sweet Castleisland, so dear to me
In that green valley I’d long to be
Down by the Maine I’d love to roam
In Castleisland, my home, sweet home
