Yet another lyric request..... I'm looking for "Summer in Dublin" sung by a male Irish singer (might be Jim McCann)

I have the lyrics written down, just not in front of my trusty laptop at the moment. I will get them to you in the next day or two if somebody doesn't beat me to the punch. The version I am familiar with is by Jim McCann, what a voice! Marc

Found 'em.

Liam Reilly

Take me away from this city and lead me to where I can be on my own.
I wanted to see it and now that I have, I just want to be left alone.
I'll always remember your kind words and I’ll still remember your name,
But I've seen you changing and turning and I know that things won't be the same.

CHORUS: I remember that summer in Dublin and the Liffey as it stank like hell,
And the young people walking down Grafton Street and everyone looking so well.
I was singing a song I heard somewhere called "Rock and Roll Never Forgets"
When my humming was smothered by the 46A and the scream of a low-flying jet;
So I jumped on a bus to Dunleary, stopping off to pick up my guitar,
And a drunk on the bus told me how to get rich. I was glad we weren't going too far.

So I'm leaving on Wednesday morning, trying to find a place I can hear
Where the wind and the birds and the sea and the rocks, where open roads always are near,
And if sometimes I tire of the quiet, and I want to get back up that hill,
I'll just get on the road and stick out my thumb. I know that you'll be there still.

Repeat chorus.

Enjoy. Marc
