AmyLove Lyr Add: Coming Back to Miltown (6) Lyr Add: Coming Back to Miltown 04 Feb 17


As performed by Kilfenora Fiddle Ceili Band:

As I sit and dream in Boston, beneath the starry skies
Memories come crowding of the time I was a boy
A barefoot happy lad I trod the wide, wide streets of home
A carefree lad with friends galore, I was a fool to roam

But now I'm comin' back to Miltown
In a week I will be there
Back with the folks I love so well
In my dear old County Clare
I love the friendly neighbors
And I'll drink with all the boys
I want to see the sadness
Leave my dear mother's eyes

My mother, she had raised me on her own since I was three
And it nearly broke her kindly heart when I went across the sea
But I was young in those far off days, all I wanted was to roam
I didn't mind the heartbreak I caused to those back home

But now I'm comin' back to Miltown
In a week I will be there
Back with the folks I love so well
In my dear old County Clare
I love the friendly neighbors
And I'll drink with all the boys
I want to see the sadness
Leave my dear mother's eyes

Near Quilty there's a beauty, her name, it is Eileen
And I know that she is waiting there for me
So no more I'll go a roamin', in Miltown I will stay
And I'll wed my dark eyed beauty right away

So now I'm comin' back to Miltown
In a week I will be there
Back with the folks I love so well
In my dear old County Clare
I love the friendly neighbors
And I'll drink with all the boys
I want to see the sadness
Leave my dear mother's eyes
