Thin Lizzy – Philomena lyrics

I've been a wild wild rover
Sailed all over the sea
But this thing that makes me wonder
Has made a fool of me

For it took me from my childhood
Underneath the stars and skies
And I still hear the wind
Whistling through the wild wood, whispering goodbye

It's home boys home
She's home boys home
No matter
Where I roam

If you see my mother
Please give her all of my love
For she has a heart of gold there
As good as God above

If you see my mother
Tell her I'm keeping fine
Tell her that I love her
And I'll try and write sometime
