Dublin Town (Fly Me Home)

Memories coming back to me of Dublin boyhood dreams
The friendly names and faces that I know
Now I'm high above the ocean in an emerald colored dream
Reliving all the days of long ago

Chorus:
So fly me home sweet wings of morning
Fly me home where my soul will ever be
In my heart I hear you calling
In my mind it's my Dublin town I see

Me first communion money was a pocket full of dreams
In me brand new longers spent just like a man
Then my school boy days were over I was goin' on thirteen
When I turned to stealing kisses in the Green

And I fished for the silver perch by lochs at Sally's Bridge
Where the lazy dapple horses pulled the barge
Played relive-e-o and I boxed the fox and the darlin' kick the can
They made the boy that makes the dream a man

Chorus:
So fly me home sweet wings of morning
Fly me home where my soul will ever be
In my heart I hear you calling
In my mind it's my Dublin town I see

I'll take a walk down Merchant's Quay say a prayer for friends long gone
At the Brazen Head black porter prompts a song
Old melodies and ageless rhymes that echo o'er the swell
In harmony the lonely Angelus Bell

The happy sound of things I knew unchanging and unchanged
Dublin's past and present in my soul
Simple dreams and gentle times that loving memory span
They made the boy that makes the dream a man
