I used to sing this one; I think it was written by Robbie O'Connell but not sure. Can't remember the name but I really like the song.

Tis many the tide now has turned since I stood all alone on the Quay key) and watched as you waved me goodby and I felt my heart breaking in me.

and

I'll drink to the times that are past and the days when we stood on the shore
To you I will raise up my glass for I know that I'll not see you more.

Don't know the name so cant look it up.

The Road to Dunmoor


I was walking the road to Dunmoor, one evening as often I'd done,
And my heart being heavy as stone, I was thinking 'bout times that were gone;
When we walked arm in arm to the shore and watched the waves roll to the sea,
Never thinking that there'd be a time they'd be rolling between you and me.

There's many a time I have turned as I sit all alone on the quay,
And I watched as you waved me goodbye, and I felt my heart breaking in me.
If I were a prince or a king, had money or treasure in store,
I'd travel the whole world wide and not rest, till I had found you once more.

There's many a moment I'd wait for the letters you promised to send,
And I'd count out the hours in each day till we'd both be united again.
They say that in time love grows cold, and it fades like the morning dew,
But time won't alter my mind, for I know that I can't forget you.

I've money enough for one glass, but maybe my credit will hold,
In memories I'm as rich as a king, but that can't warm my heart when I'm cold.
So we'll drink to the times that are past and days when we walked on the shore,
And to you, I will raise my glass, for I know that I'll ne'er see you more.



    Farewell, dear one...............

True to that, Kendall. However, I'm finding sites that spell it also as Dunmore. I'd guess Dunmore is correct considering that the author spelled it that way.

The Road to Dunmore

I was walking the road to Dunmore one evening as often I'd done
And my heart was as heavy as stone, I was thinking of times that are gone
When we walked arm in arm on the shore and we watched the waves roll on the sea
Never thinking that there'd come a time they'd be rolling between you and me

And it's many's the tide now has turned since I stood all alone on the quay
And I watched as you waved your farewell and you left a heart breaking in me
But if I were a prince or a king and had money and treasure in store
I'd travel the whole world wide and not rest 'til I'd found you once more

It's many's the morning I'd wait for the letters you promised to send
And I counted the hours of each day 'til we'd both be united again
And they say that in time love grows cold and it fades like the morning dew
But time will not alter my mind for I know that I can't forget you

I have money enough for one glass but maybe my credit will hold
For in memories I'm rich as a king though they can't warm a heart when it's cold
So I'll drink to the times that are past and to the days when we walked on the shore
And to you I will raise up my glass for I know that I'll ne'er see you more

Kendall - Road to Dunmore.

Robbie does a great job of writing songs that sound a hundred years old.

I recorded it on my second solo album in 1982.

Also check out Robbie's Ferrybank Piper.

That's my favorite mondegreeen. I thought it was the Fairy Bagpiper for the longest, and I still like to imagine an otherworldly piper when I hear the song. Not crazy about 'til in your grave you lie' every chorus, but what a great song.

Great song! I first learned it from Mick Moloney. I sang it for David at this year's Getaway, 'cause I thought he oughta have it in his repertoire. As beautiful as it is, I'm very surprised it hasn't been recorded by more folks.

My great-grandmother came from Dunmore, Co. Galway. I'll have to get familiar with this song. Seamus, I have a couple of your discs but the song is on neither; which album is it on? Cheers,.....mwh
