West coast of Clare

Lyrics

Sorrow and sadness, bitterness, grief
Memories I have of you won’t leave me in peace
My mind is running back to the West coast of Clare
Thinking of you and the times we spent there

I walked the Spanise point I knew I’d find you there
I stood on the white strand and you were everywhere
Vivid memories fade but the mood still remains
I wish I could go back and be with you again

In Milltown there is a pub it’s there that I sat down
I see you everywhere your face is all around
The search of times past contains such sweet pain
I’ll banish lonesome thoughts but they’ll return again

I walk along the shore the rain in my face
My mind is numb with grief of you there is no trace
I’ll think of this again when in far off gleng I rove
Walking with you by this cold Atlantic flow

Sorrow and sadness, bitterness, grief
Memories I have of you won’t leave me in peace
My mind is running back to the West coast of Clare
Thinking of you and the times we spent there
