Bing Crosby - Galway Bay

If you ever go across the sea to Ireland
Then maybe at the closin' of your day
You will sit and watch the moonrise over Claddagh
And watch the barefoot gossoons at their play

Just to hear again the ripple of the trout stream
The women in the meadows makin' hay
And to sit beside a turf fire in the cabin
And see the sun go down on Galway Bay

For the breeze's blowin' o´er the seas from Ireland
Are perfumed by the heather as they blow;
And the women in the upland diggin´ praties
Speak a language that the strangers do not know

For the strangers came and tried to teach us their way
They scorned us just for bein' what we are
But they might as well go chasing after moonbeams
Or light a penny candle from a star

And if there's goin' to be a life hereafter
And fate I'm sure there´s goin' to be
I will ask my God to let me make my heaven
In that dear land across the Irish sea
