fulurum Lyr Req: Song of Long Ago (Carole King) (3) Lyr Add: SING ME THE OLD SONGS (Tommy Makem) 12 Jan 00

Don't know if it fits here but what the hell. I'm getting compulsive too.

(Tommy Makem)

1. I sit by my fire when the twilight falls softly
And all the sweet memories flow through my mind.
I imagine I see as the flames wave and flicker
The people and places that I left behind.

CHORUS: Sing me the old songs of laughter and pleasure.
Sing me the old songs of sorrow and pain.
Sing from the heart; sing of love without measure,
The good times, the bad times and the sunshine and rain.

2. I hear an old song that keeps haunting me ever.
The good times rush back with that well loved refrain.
The sweet wine is flowing, the bright laughter ringing,
And all the old friends gather round me again. CHORUS

3. I remember the summers, the walks in the country,
The long quiet evenings, the smell of the hay,
The touch of a hand and a smile that beguiled me
And told me of love, that's still with me today. CHORUS
