Welcome

This song is by Declan De Barra and appears on the album Song Of A Thousand Birds (2005).

You had to leave like you were cast far and wide,
You didn't have a choice,
There was nothing to decide
Without food in our bellies,
Without a pick in our bones,
Without a scrap on our backs
We had to leave our homes...

So welcome home,
Even though you're far from yours
Welcome home,
Welcome to these shores...
You don't have to change your culture or your ways,
Your language or your heart,
You're welcome as you are...

Don't listen to their words,
We won't leave you down
They're traitors to our dead,
To our history abroad,
We sailed on coffin ships
To many foreign shores
We were welcome to their lands
And now the turn is ours...

So welcome home,
Even though you're far from yours
Welcome home,
Welcome to these shores...
You don't have to change your culture or your ways,
Your language or your heart,
You're welcome as you are...
