Lyrics:

MEET ME BACK IN IRELAND

SAID A LAST GOODBYE TO LOVED ONES
THEN WE SANG THAT OLD REFRAIN
AND THE GHOSTS OF GENERATIONS
HEARD THOSE PARTING WORDS AGAIN
MAY THE ROAD RISE TO MEET US
THIS TIME THE ROAD GOES BOTH WAYS
ONCE A TIME OF NO RETURNING
WE'LL RETURN AGAIN SOME DAY

MEET ME BACK IN IRELAND
I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU THERE
WHERE THE LAND MEETS THE ATLANTIC
SURE WE'LL WALK AND TAKE THE AIR
HAVE A NIGHT IN DUBLIN CITY
WHERE YOU'LL NEVER FEEL ALONE
T'WOULD BE GRAND TO HAVE YOU WITH ME
WHEN I MAKE THE JOURNEY HOME

ON THE BUILDING SITES OF LONDON
WHERE THEY OFTEN CALLED US FOOLS
TO THE STORMY STREETS OF GLASGOW
AND THE DOCKS OF LIVERPOOL

FROM THE RAINY STREETS OF NEW YORK
TO THE SHORES OF SAN FRANCISCO BAY
AND THE COLD WINDS OF CHICAGO
I WANT US BOTH TO GET AWAY


THERE'S AN OLD MAN IN HIS GLORY
TELLING STORIES OF THE LAND
FROM HIS HEART HE SHARES THE MEMORIES
LIKE YESTERDAY WAS IN HIS HAND

AND I HEAR IT DOWN IN SYDNEY
IN CHRISTCHURCH AND CAPETOWN TOO
FROM ROME TO COPENHAGAN
THERE'S A VOICE THAT CALLS TO YOU

FOR THE GAEL HAS BEEN ALL OVER
EVERYWHERE OUR SEEDS ARE SEWN
JUST ANOTHER IRISH ROVER
AND THERE'S NOWHERE ELSE LIKE HOME

MEET ME BACK IN IRELAND
I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU THERE
WHERE THE LAND MEETS THE ATLANTIC
SURE WE'LL WALK AND TAKE THE AIR
IN THE WEST A SUMMER'S EVENING
SILVER WATERS KISS THE SHORE
FEEL THE MAGIC IN THE MOMENT
THAT WILL LAST FOR EVERMORE
