(Cathy Ross)

I went over to Ireland to just say hello
To honor ancestors who left long ago
But when I saw the green hills and the mist rolling slow
I knew that my heart had come home

cho: I've come home to Ireland from 200 years
To people with faces like looking in mirrors
We sang some old songs, and we cried some old tears
And I knew that my heart had come home.

I wandered the lands my ancestors had known
Killarney, Kilkenny, Tralee and Tyrone
And wherever I'd go, 'twas "come in and sit down"
And I knew that my heart had come home

From the north to the south, they told one wish to me
Peace for all Ireland, united and free
For a land with no borders except for the sea
A land with one heart and one home.
