Hello, I wonder if someone could help me find the lyrics of "Ireland, my Ireland" on the Wolfe Tones CD "rebels and heroes".
Thanks
Anne

The wolfe Tones have their own offical web site and there is a contact board. All their lyrics will be listed here. Easy found on net. All you will have to do is sign in and now registar due to recent abuse of site.Good luck. Great song by the way.

Yes I've sent a message to the contact board on the Wolfe Tones site. I don't know if they reply to request for lyrics. (I can only use the Internet at work that's why I have to be quick and can't check everything !) I've also searched on Google.
I'm also looking for "In Belfast" (different from "Belfast graves").
Thanks
Anne

Here's what I think I hear. It's a rather free-form song that doesn't divide into stanzas easily.

IRELAND, MY IRELAND
As sung by the Wolfe Tones on "Rebels and Heroes" (2010)

In my dreams I know that I can fly
Just like the small birds and the free birds
I can fly just like the birds on high
In the freedom of the skies
I can soar across the heavens
How easy now it seems
Like a bird, I have no cares or sorrow
In the shadow, the shadow of my dreams
Ireland, my Ireland,
It seems to me that all the trees are sighing in the breeze
Ireland, I'll fight for my land
Leaders of young Ireland have been banished o'er the seas
As I wander through this lonely land my heart is filled with pain
For our people have no freedom, are impoverished and enchained
I see them fight and struggle
Against the hunger and the stony hearts of men
Ireland, young Ireland
Banished to the land beyond the seas
As I gaze upon the beauty of this land
I can see a rich and fertile land
I feel the spirit of the nation
A young maiden weeps upon the hearth
I see tumbling towns and towers
In a land that's full of beauty
From the mountains to the seas
But the ... bow down their heads in sorrow
In this valley, this valley filled with tears
Ireland, my Ireland
Seems to me that all the trees are sighing in the breeze
Ireland, I fight for my land
The leaders of young Ireland have been banished o'er the seas
As I fly across this lonely land see golden fields of corn
I see land that's filled with plenty yet the people starve and mourn
Ireland now is silenced
To the land beyond the waves now they're gone
Ireland, young Ireland
Banished to the land beyond the seas
As I gaze upon the beauty of this land
