Thomas Maguire & Fhiona Ennis – Come Back To Ireland lyrics

While sitting in his bedsit room in London
Some thoughts of his Mother came to view
Was what she said the morning he was leaving
To travel far across the deep blue sea
She said, "Come back Paddy soon again to Ireland
Come back Paddy soon again to me
For I know that far off field's, they do look greener
Sure Ireland's the place you ought to be"

It's twenty years ago now since that morning
I only wish my Mother I could see
But she has gone and I'm still here in London
And Ireland again, I'll never see
She said, "Come back Paddy soon again to Ireland
Come back Paddy soon again to me
For I know that far off field's they do look greener
Sure Ireland's the place you ought to be"

But know he's home again in dear old Ireland
So sad that his dear old Mothers' passed away
But he was young and far off fields looked greener
Dear old Ireland's the place he ought to be
She said, "Come back Paddy dear to Ireland
Come back Paddy soon again to me
For I know that far off field's they do look greener
And Ireland's the place I ought to be
Yes I know that far off field's they do look greener
Sure Ireland's the place I ought to be
