Farewell to Carlingford

  • Tommy Makem

    So I'll sing farewell to Carlingford
    And farewell to Greenore
    And I'll think of you both day and night
    Until I return once more
    Till I return once more

    When I was young and in my prime and could wander wild and free
    There was always the longing in my mind to follow the call of the sea

    And all of the stormy seven seas I have sailed before the mast
    And on every voyage I ever made I swore it would be my last

    Now I had a girl called Mary Boyle and she lived in Greenore
    And the foremost thought that was in her mind was to keep me safe on shore

    Now the landsman's life is all his own - he can go or he can stay
    But when the sea gets in your blood when she calls you must obey

    (as sung by The Dubliners)
