Wolfe Tones – The Crossing lyrics
In these sad and lonely days for Ireland
Our people shipped across the ocean wide
They left their footsteps by the harbour walls
And their dreams are in the hills
And the cabins that were home
In the fields and in the towns of Ireland

Chorus:
In our hearts we always will remember
All the tragedy, the hunger, the death and pain
In our hearts we always will remember
All the millions that were lost
All the lifes that it cost
In those ships, those coffin ships, those ships of tears

In overcrowded ships not fit for people
The angel of death did cast it's hungry eye
For many will die upon the ocean deep
And the childrens' hungry pleas
From the ??? and disease

In those ships, those coffin ships, those ships of tears
Now their ghosts will dance upon the ocean
Their spirits are wandering on a lonely wave
The moon and stars will cast a laughing eye
Build a bridge across the sea
Place a cross, in memory
For each life that was lost in that holocaust
