Ireland

This song is by Shannon Murray and appears on the album You And A Six String (2003).

I am going to Ireland on a ship I'm going far away

I am going to Ireland one of these days

I am going to jump right in

And take a swim in my river in my Ireland

How can we know where we are going

When we don't know where we have been

We learn history from textbooks in school

Written by the rich and the men that rule

While our grandparents sit in nursing homes

And our history is lost and we are lost and lost we'll roam

How can we know where we are going

When we don't know where we have been

Lover won't you come to my window tonight

Sing me that song in summer moonlight

Because I don't know much about love and romance

My parents were victims of circumstance

How can we know where we are going

When we don't know where we have been

I am going to Ireland on a ship I'm going far away

I am going to Ireland one of these days

I am going to jump right in

And take a swim in my river in my Ireland
