DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyr Req: 'Why do I wander, and why do I roam?'

Yesternight, at the Copenhagen Irish Festival's concert, Christy O'Leary and Bert Deivert played a song with the start of the chorus going like this Why do I wander, and why do I roam? These questions [this question?] I ask everyday, [something saying that if he had found true love, or a true love, he wouldn't something which I didn't quite comprehend], and as smart as I am, I soon forgot the title of it, as well as forgot to ask for it afterwards when I talked with Christy... *sigh*

Anyway, if anyone could help me, I'd be very grateful, a few quick searches in the DT mostly brought nothing up, or the one who did, nothing useful...

Feso, they have a website, with an e mail contact. You could try asking them. I didn't find anything at all.

Well, I won't e-mail them 'til I've seen if I can catch them on Sunday... besides, Martin O'Hare should know them pretty well, so... he might be able to get it for me too, but... I'm just gonna throw out a line and lure here, see if I can get a catch... and if nothing shows up, then there's e-mail or Martin :)

Lyrics copied (and tidied up a bit) from http://laramiecrocker.com/lyrics/why.html


AMERICAN GYPSY
Copyright © 2003 Laramie Crocker

Each time I come back home,
I ask myself the same old questions:
Why do I wander? Why do I roam?
Why do I ever leave this green, green home?
Why would I ever
Leave this place again, again, again?

Each time I leave this place again,
I ask myself the same old question:
Why do I shelter down? What do I fear,
When there's a whole big wide world out here?
Why would I ever
Stay in one place again, again, again?

Each time my heart breaks again,
I ask myself the same damn question:
Why would I ever play the fool again?
Why would I ever feel the pain again?
Why would I ever
Fall in love again, again, again?

Each time I fall in love again,
I ask myself the same old questions:
How, could I stay away from love so long?
How, from this feeling that just can't be wrong?
Now, gonna write myself a brand new song:
It's gonna say:
How, could I ever stay away from love again, again, again?

[From Laramie Crocker's album "Crazy"
