ABBEYLEIX

Abbeyleix
I hear you calling
In my dreams
I hear you say
Come back home
To dear old Erin
Abbeyleix, I'll come back to you some day

Twenty years ago today,
Since first I sailed away
And left my dear old home so far behind
But since that lonely journey
My heart is always yearning
My happy home, at least in Leix (JRO) once more to find


Abbeyleix, I hear you calling
In my dreams, I hear you say
Come back home to dear old Erin
Abbeyleix, I'll come back to you some day

I still have pleasant mem'ries
Of that old river your
I fished along your banks each summer day
Those memories I still cherish
From distant days I yearn
Those days of youth, when I was young and fit

Abbeyleix, I hear you calling
In my dreams, I hear you say
Come back home to dear old Erin
Abbeyleix, I'll come back to you some day

The lovely trees and woodland
Around that little town
Have beauties just as rare as you will find
To see those scenes of childhood
Once more I will return
And meet those folks so friendly and so kind

Abbeyleix, I hear you calling
In my dreams, I hear you say
Come back home to dear old Erin
Abbeyleix, I'll come back to you some day
Abbeyleix, I'll come back to you some day
