Thread Name: Lyr Req: songs of parting
Subject: Lyr Add: SLÁN ABHAILE
And speaking of Cathie Ryan, I've always thought it'd be terrific for her to sing a duet with Willie Nelson. I'd like to hear their voices blend in yet another parting (or perhaps parted) song, Slán Abhaile

The sun is down, the moon is blue
I think they know that I'm missing you
But time will heal this heartfelt pain
As soon as I see you again...

Slán abhaile, slan go foill
Beidh mo chroi seo briste gan thú a stór
Nó go gcasfad arís orainn
Éist is bí ag smaoineamh
Ar an gceol 'tá ag teacht
Ó mo chroi seo amach


Safe home, good luck
This heart of mine will be broken without you, my love
Until we meet again
Listen and be thinking
On the music that is coming
From the depths of my heart
