Walking all the day
Near tall towers where falcons build their nests
Silver wings they fly,
They know the call for freedom in their breasts,
Saw Black Head against the sky
With twisted rocks that run down to the sea

Living on your western shore,
Saw summer sun sets, I asked for more,
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
And sang a song for Ireland

Drinking all the day,
In old pubs where fiddlers love to play,
Saw one take the bow,
He played a reel that was so grand and gay,
I stood on dingle beach and cast,
In wild foam for Atlantic bass,

Living on your western shore,
Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
And sang a song for Ireland

Talking all the day,
With true friends who try to make you stay,
Telling jokes and news,
Singing songs to pass the time away,
Watched the galway salmon run,
Like silver dancing, darting in the sun,

living on your western shore,
Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
I stood by your Atlantic Sea,
And sang a song for Ireland

Dreaming in the night,
I saw a land where no-man had to fight,
Waking in your dawn,
I saw you crying in the morning light,
Sleeping where the falcons fly,
They twist and turn all in your air-blue sky,

Living on your western shore,
Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more,
I stood by your Atlantic sea,
And I sang a song for Ireland
