Story

I fell in love with the West of Ireland many years ago. I miss it when I'm not there. This song is for John Tiernan of Murrisk Bay, and for all the wonderful people in the West.

Lyrics

I'm a wealthy man in Connemara I own the hills down to the sea The silver pools, the golden heather Wait there in my dreams for me So many friends in Murrisk Abbey Lie so still now by the bay But I can hear their ringing laughter In my dreams so far away CHORUS: Galway to County Mayo Holds all I'll ever need I'm a wealthy man in Connemara When I'm away I'm poor indeed I love a land that is not mine, now My heart was stolen long ago A stranger passing through these valleys And along the Garavogue Down the winding streets of Sligo A cold sea crashing to the shore Of a lonely beach on Achill Island Will I see them anymore? Repeat CHORUS
