There's a spot far away, o'er the wide-spreading ocean,
A place that my fond heart will never forget.
Fond memory springs 'round it, so pure & so tender,
That even its name brings a sigh of regret.
Regret for the long banished days of my childhood,
when earth was all pleasure, & life knew but joy.
Oh! could I recall them, those bright golden hours,
I spent long ago in my home in Fermoy.
Well there's the first verse. to my shame, that's all I can remember offhand. I'll see if I find some more for you. I'm afraid chords are beyond me though. Eddie
