Subject: I can almost see Ireland from here
From: Ezio
Date: 16 Aug 97 - 02:25 AM

This beautiful and delicate song should be sung from Danny Doyle. A few word are missing. Any help? THANK YOU!

Ezio from Italy

------------------------------------
I CAN ALMOST SEE IRELAND FROM HERE

These hills are not my hills
But they always remind me
Of the faces and places
I left long ago
My hills are not blue _____
As blue as my tears

Kentucky is the bluebird
With wings on my mind
And the rivers and valleys
look so much like home
And those _____ _____
It's sad to my ears

CHORUS: It's hard to find sunshine
As bright as my daydreams
It's beautiful here
But there's no place like home

___ (one entire verse missing)
___ (one entire verse missing)

The view from the mountains
The cry of the eagle
Brings a song to my heart
But it dies on my tongue
And on morning like this
When the memories are clear
I can almost see Ireland from here

Here's how I hear it:


I CAN ALMOST SEE IRELAND FROM HERE
As sung by Frank Patterson on "I Can Almost See Ireland from Here" (2011)

1. These hills are not my hills but they always remind me
Of faces and places I left long ago.
My hills are much bluer, as blue as my tears.
I can almost see Ireland from here.

2. Kentucky's a bluebird, puts wings on my mind,
And the rivers and valleys look so much like home,
But though she sings sweetly, it's sad to my ears.
I can almost see Ireland from here.

3. It's hard to find sunshine as bright as my daydreams.
It's beautiful here, but there's no place like home.
On hushed wings of dreaming, through soft mist of springtime,
I can almost see Ireland from here.

4. The view from the mountain, the cry of the eagle,
Brings a song to my heart, but it dies on my tongue;
And on mornings like this, when the memories are clear,
I can almost see Ireland from here.

REPEAT VERSE 3
REPEAT LAST 2 LINES OF VERSE 4.
