Chisel Hill

Album: Shamrock Diaries (1985)
  • Misty eyes on a misty day
    Come across a place like this along your way
    You walk straight in to that sweet and tender trap
    And you know you're lost and found
    And there ain't no going back
    Spend the rest of your days playing all the hardest games
    Just to get back to that place again
    And memories oh how they stick to you
    You know there ain't a thing, not a single thing you can do
    On chisel hill

    I've been ten thousand miles from this place and seen it I swear
    I've woke up happy thinking that I was there
    It's the place I love, it's where I wanna be
    And I won't give up until I get to see
    A little something in there to call my own
    Pass the time of day and head off home
    The evening shadows on the dry stone walls
    The night draws in and the ale house calls
    And happy I will be
    When the road goes no further than what I see
    When past here it's nowhere to go
    And I ain't gonna give up until I get see
    Those angel eyes looking up at me
    The prince of peace and time is standing still
    On chisel hill
