Rumors of my death have been exaggerated.

Years ag I used to sing a song that was written by Robbie O'Connell titled. The road to Dunmoor. I've lost some of the lyrics, and I would appreciate getting them back. It is not in the DT. Help

There y' go

Words and Music, Robbie O’Connell © 1983

I was walking the road to Dunmore one evening as often I'd done
And my heart was as heavy as stone; I was thinking of times that are gone
When we walked arm in arm on the shore and we watched the waves roll on the sea
Never thinking that there'd come a time they'd be rolling between you and me.

And it's many's the tide now has turned since I stood all alone on the quay
And I watched as you waved your farewell and you left a heart breaking in me
But if I were a prince or a king and had money and treasure in store
I'd travel the whole world wide and not rest 'til I'd found you once more

It's many's the morning I'd wait for the letters you promised to send
And I counted the hours of each day 'til we'd both be united again
And they say that in time love grows cold and it fades like the morning dew
But time will not alter my mind for I know that I can't forget you

I have money enough for one glass but maybe my credit will hold
For in memories I'm rich as a king though they can't warm a heart when it's cold
So I'll drink to the times that are past and the days when we walked on the shore
And to you I'll raise up my glass for I know that I'll ne'er see you more
