Lyrics wanted for The Green Glens of Antrim; last line of the chorus is
The green glens of Antrim are calling to me
Anyone know of it?

If that's the song I'm thinking of, the Battlefield Band recorded it and it actually goes by another name. Naturally I can't think of it right now...

I have it on a tape by an Irish group called (I think) Brier. I'll try and transcribe it for you tomorrow.

Wassail! V

THE GREEN GLENS OF ANTRIM SONG

Far across yonder blue lies a true fairyland
With the sea rippling over the shingle and sand
Where the gay honeysuckle is luring the bee
And the green glens of Antrim are calling to me
Sure if only you knew how the lamp of the moon
Turns a blue Irish bay to a silver lagoon
You'd imagine the picture of heaven 'twould be
Where the green glens of Antrim are calling to me

Soon I hope to return to my own Cushendall
'Tis the one place for me that can outshine them all
Sure I know every stone, I recall tree
Where the green glens of Antrim are calling to me
I would call at a cabin close down by the shore
And I'd knock with my heart at that we cabin door
Where the sun showered gold in the lap of the sea
And the green glens of Antrim were welcoming me

'Tis alone my concern if the grandest surprise
Would be shining at me out of somebody's eyes
'Tis my private affair what my feelings would be
While the green glens of Antrim were welcoming me
But I'd be where the people were simple and kind
And among them the one who's been aye in my mind
Sure I'd pray that the world would in peace let me be
Where the green glens of Antrim are heaven to me

Above is the blue click link by Brakn to thread 6621 where the song was posted with tune by Alison, 24 Sep. 98.
This would have better been posted there but thanks for the composer and copyright date, which were lacking in the original posts.

I've only accompanied it once (by ear and a long time ago), but I think it's a fairly basic 3 chord waltz.

I think that the Battlefield Band may have recorded the "Green HILLS of Antrim"----We ("The Bottom Line") sang it on Tuesday night at a gig,and a guy at the bar told me he had it on a cd(by the BB) and played it in his car a lot. Don't know about "Glens" though.
