Hi everyone I was wondering if you could help me with lyrics of this song, really struggling with lyrics on chorus. Must have listened over a hundered times and still can't work them out. It's called Don't Wake Me Up Till We Touch Down In Shannon (Written By Walter Cunningham) sung on this video by country singer Robert Mizzell. This is all I can get from chorus.

"Don't wake me up till we touch down in Shannon,
Let my homesick heart rest for a while,
No ???, Parking ??? or ?????
I just can't wait to walk an Irish mile.

If you can help, I will really appreciate it
Thanks

Hi, Eamonn-
Can you post all you have, so we can make a group effort on the whole song without duplicating what you've done already?

This is what I have so far Joe. Thanks for help.

If route 66 passed through Kilarney
If a Mississippi river boat churned waves in Dublin Bay
If they had a rodeo down there in Bandon
This ramblin fool never would have strayed

Don't wake me up till we touch down in Shannon,
Let my homesick heart rest for a while,
No ???, Parking ??? or ?????
I just can't wait to walk an Irish mile

They told me the grass would be greener
But it was not as green as the grass I left behind
I headed for Montana, but I longed for Buncrana
I couldn't get old Ireland off my mind

(Chorus x 2)
Don't wake me up till we touch down in Shannon,
Let my homesick heart rest for a while,
No ???, Parking ??? or ?????
I just can't wait to walk an Irish mile

You know I just can't wait to walk an Irish mile

Thanks a lot my friend. Much appreciated.

1. If Route 66 passed through Kilarney,
If a Mississippi riverboat churned waves in Dublin Bay,
If they had a rodeo down there in Bandon,
This ramblin' fool never would have strayed.

CHORUS: Don't wake me up till we touch down in Shannon.
Let my homesick heart rest for a while.
No freeways, parkin' lots, or drive-ins,
I just can't wait to walk an Irish mile.

2. They told me the grass would be greener,
But it was not as green as the grass I left behind.
I headed for Montana, but I longed for Buncrana.
I couldn't get old Ireland off my mind.

(CHORUS X 2)

You know I just can't wait to walk an Irish mile.

That must be an old song, because there certainly are freeways in Ireland now.
