AN IRISH REJOICING

The following is part of a lyric in preparation.  The tune has been recorded already,

:

Blessed are those who are born of this land

Happy are they who can hold fast its hand -

Who can pull up a chair

And bid goodbye to care

We won't ask what you're thinking

When we ask what you're drinking!

 

Lucky are those who share this old bond

Eager are they who come from beyond

For Its mountains and mystery

Proud settings for its history

We won't ask why you smile

Or why you stop here a while.

 

But we'll understand why you'll alway come back

To enjoy the warm welcome and the fun of the craic!

Thanks, Lisa. I confess owing the impetus to a recently acquired
set of songs sung by Liam Clancy. What a great performer!
