Subject: Lyr Add: NANCY SPAIN (Barney Rush)
Nancy Spain appeared on Christy Moore's 1976 self titled album. Here are the lyrics from “The Christy Moore Songbook”:

Written by Barney Rush

Of all the stars that ever shone, not one does twinkle like your pale blue eyes
Like golden corn at harvest time your hair
Sailing in my boat the wind gently blows and fills my sails
Your sweet scented breath is everywhere

Daylight peeping through the curtains of the passing nighttime is your smile
The sun in the sky is like your laugh
Come back to me my Nancy linger for just a little while
Since you left these shores I know no peace nor joy

(CHORUS) No matter where I wander I'm still haunted by your name
The portrait of your beauty stays the same
Standing by the ocean, wondering where you've gone, if you'll return again
Where is the ring I gave to Nancy Spain?

On the day in spring when the snow starts to melt and streams to flow
With the birds I'll sing to you a song
In the while I'll wander down by bluebell grove Where wildflowers grow
And hope my lovely Nancy will return.
