  2. Free Tibet or Northern Ireland? It's a good question
  3. This song is pure beauty.
  4. LYRICS Walking all the day, near tall towers where falcons build their nests Silver winged they fly, they know the call of freedom in their breasts Saw Black Head against the sky where twisted rocks they run down to the sea Living on your western shore, saw summer sunsets, asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland Drinking all the day in old pubs where fiddlers love to play Someone touched the bow, he played a reel it seemed so fine and gay Stood on Dingle beach and cast in wild foam we found Atlantic bass Living on your western shore, saw summer sunsets asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland Talking all the day with true friends who try to make you stay Telling jokes and news, singing songs to pass the night away Watched the Galway salmon run like silver dancing darting in the sun Living on your western shore saw summer sunsets, asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland Dreaming in the night I saw a land where no man had to fight Waking in your dawn I saw you crying in the morning light Lying where the falcons fly, they twist and turn all in you e'er blue sky Living on your western shore, saw summer sunsets asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland
  5. Sorry to see that this wonderful song is abused for political crap. May sense come to everyone, where men is accounted for 'just' being human and not condemned on forehand based upon religion, race, etc. Peace to you all.

  25. The Dubliners - Song for Ireland Walking all the day near tall towers where falcons build their nests Silver wings they fly, They know the call for freedom in their breasts, Saw Black Head against the sky Where twisted rocks they run down to the sea Living on your western shore, Saw summer sun sets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic Sea, And i sang a song for Ireland Drinking all the day, In old pubs where fiddlers love to play, Saw one touch the bow, He played a reel that seamed so grand and gay, I stood on dingle beach and cast, In wild foam for Atlantic bass, Living on your western shore, Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic Sea, And sang a song for Ireland Talking all the day, With true friends who try to make you stay, Telling jokes and news, Singing songs to while the time away, Watched the galway salmon run, Like silver dancing, darting in the sun, living on your western shore, Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic Sea, And i sang a song for Ireland Dreaming in the night, I saw a land where no-one had to fight, Waking in your dawn, I saw you crying in the morning light, sleeping where the falcons fly, They twist and turn all in your air-blue sky, Living on your western shore, Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic sea, And I sang a song for Ireland
