I had a request in our local folk club for some lyrics to a song by Kieran Halpin, called Nothing To Show For It All.
I had not heard the song, but the melody, which he knew, was haunting and I was hoping someone out there would know the lyrics.
Much appreciated.

Been too long away from your lovin',
Too long with my back to the wall,
Been to some faraway places, with nothin' to show for it all.

CHORUS: Been too long away from this country,
Too long not heeding your call,
Now I'm back like some war weary soldier,
With nothin' to show for it all.

Been to their sites and showcases
Been to their strong city halls
Men in dark suits with no faces
And nothing to show for it all. CHORUS

I've laughed at their jokes and their jestings
I've laughed at their jibes through it all
They said go back to the place where you come from
You've nothing to give us at all. CHORUS

But Cheer up now there's someone who's waiting
Someone who cares after all

There is a fourth verse that my mate Jude sings but I've forgot it.

Jim

I've been too long away from your lovin',
Too long my back to the wall,
I've been to some faraway places, with nothin' to show for it all.

CHORUS: I've been too long away from this country,
Too long not heeding your call,
Now I'm back like some war weary sailor,
With nothin' to show for it all.

I've been to your sites and showcases
Marched to your strong city halls
Men in black suits with no faces
With nothing to show for it all. CHORUS

I've heard all the stories they tell you,
Some I can barely recall,
It's hard when the tide turns against you'
It's all you can do not to fall. CHORUS

I've taken the jibes and the jester.
I've laughed at your jokes through it all
They said go back to that place where you come from
Got nothing to give us after all. CHORUS

Breath easy theres someone there waiting,
Someone who cares after all!
