A quick Google of the title brought up a blurb with this in it.

Open call to artists – Deadline Alert: March 6 is the submission deadline to participate in Rockaway Artists' Alliance's exhibitions and special events for Art Frenzy and Remembering. These two huge spring shows are open to all artists – members and non-members: visual, performance, literary. Contact RAA for information, including submission guidelines. Email: RockArt116@aol.com. Rockaway Artists Alliance is also in the telephone book.

I suspect that the email address might get you the words, as they mention the song in the rest of the article.

Dave

I don't know the lyrics off the top of my head but my father wrote the song and it's called "The Rockaway Waltz".

Waltz Me Back to Rockaway (or Rockaway Waltz) by John Egan and the Irish Tradewinds

There's things that I remember though they seem so long ago
With my friends and my relations to a place we used to go
Those old songs so dear still haunt my ear though they sound so far away
I'll ne'er forget, I can see them yet, those old days in Rockaway

Chorus:
So, waltz me back to Rockaway
How I'd love it if things were still like that today
Waltz me back to Rockaway
Like a small bit of Ireland in the US of A

You could find twenty Irish pubs in every block
Leitrim, The Bungalow, (Knot Lock?), the lot
See a fine show without spending a dime
With the girls on the boardwalk just passing the time

Chorus

(Accordion riff)

In the evening we'd stop at the ol' Mayo Inn
There Ma McNulty played the 'cordion
On to The Sligo House, Leitrim House too,
Mickey Carton, the McNultys, a latest Review

The same Irish Circle still stands thankfully
Where went many nights to see Ruth Morrissey
Just blocks from the boardwalk we'd swing and we'd sway
With all of our friends we would sing, dance and play

Chorus

(Piano riff)

Chorus

Chorus

An alternate hearing of the second line in the below verse:

You could find twenty Irish pubs in every block
Leitrim, The Bungalow, (Knot Lock?), the lot
See a fine show without spending a dime
With the girls on the boardwalk just passing the time

You could find twenty Irish pubs in every block
Leaving the bungalow, not lock the lock
See a fine show without spending a dime
With the girls on the boardwalk just passing the time

P.S. the alternate line is in thanks to artie's interpretation of that line, namely that the times were such that you didn't need to lock your door.
I was initially thrown off while trying to figure out that line while listening to it over and over because there actually was a bar called The Bungalow back in Rockaway's heyday.

So, final version:

Waltz Me Back to Rockaway (or Rockaway Waltz) by John Egan and the Irish Tradewinds

There's things that I remember though they seem so long ago
With my friends and my relations to a place we used to go
Those old songs so dear still haunt my ear though they sound so far away
I'll ne'er forget, I can see them yet, those old days in Rockaway

Chorus:
So, waltz me back to Rockaway
How I'd love it if things were still like that today
Waltz me back to Rockaway
Like a small bit of Ireland in the US of A

You could find twenty Irish pubs in every block
Leave from the bungalow, not lock the lock
See a fine show without spending a dime
With the girls on the boardwalk just passing the time

Chorus

(Accordion riff)

In the evening we'd stop at the ol' Mayo Inn
There Ma McNulty played the 'cordion
On to The Sligo House, Leitrim House too,
Mickey Carton, the McNultys, I'll name just a few

The same Irish Circle still stands thankfully
Where went many nights to see Ruth Morrissey
Just blocks from the boardwalk we'd swing and we'd sway
With all of our friends we would sing, dance and play

See the video at YouTube: The Rockaway Waltz written and performed by John Egan.

Sorry, I had this (below) verse right the first time but just noticed the mistake after watching Jim Dixon's YouTube referral:]

In the evening we'd stop at the ol' Mayo Inn
There Ma McNulty played the 'cordion
On to The Sligo House, Leitrim House too,
Mickey Carton, the McNultys,"I'll name just a few"

Should be: Mickey Carton, the McNultys, "a latest Review"

Then also a gaff:
"Where went "many nights to see Ruth Morrissey

Should be: "Where we went" many nights to see Ruth Morrissey


So now again, with much thanks from artie, and Jim Dixon, the final version

(altho now actually redundant after Jim found the song on YouTube); but anyhow:

Waltz Me Back to Rockaway (or Rockaway Waltz) by John Egan and the Irish Tradewinds

There's things that I remember though they seem so long ago
With my friends and my relations to a place we used to go
