  • After our affair
    I swore that I'd leave Dublin
    And in that line I'd left behind
    The years, the tears, the memories and you

    In Dublin

    At the quays friends come and say farewell
    We'd laugh and joke and smoke
    And later on the boat
    I'd cry over you

    In Dublin

    How can I leave the town that brings me down
    That has no jobs
    Is blessed by God
    And makes me cry


    And at sea with flowing hair
    I'd think of Dublin
    Of Grafton Street and Derby Square
    And those for whom I really care and you
