My Emerald In The Sea

I walked down to the harbor, fascinated by the sea

There I found the old man , a job he offered me 

I had six pence in my pocket, the whole world at my feet

Shook the hand of me Ad, said goodbye to my Ma

And headed out to sea

 

Now I miss dear Ireland, my home it will always be

How I miss my homeland, my Emerald in the Sea

 

We were sailing to a land of promise, 

A land of silver and gold, 

but we arrived in the winter time, 

It was so very cold

Things got rough and then they got tough

Hungry we would be 

How I miss me Ma's shepherds pie

The memory stays with me 

 

Now I miss dear Ireland, my home it will always be 

How I miss my homeland ,  my Emerald in the Sea

 

Then I met a lass, a sweet bonnie lass

A family soon we would be 

But we hit the skids

When we had six kids 

And the baby died at three

Then late one night 

As I turned out the light 

The phone so loud so shrill

The news was of dread 

For me own Ma was dead

I miss her . I always will 

(Instrumental solo)

I believe in angels

I see them oh so clear 

I know I am leaving this earth 

I know my time is here

 

And still I miss dear Ireland, my home it will always be 

How I miss my homeland, my Emerald in the Sea

I still miss dear Ireland, my home it will always be 

How I miss my homeland, my Emerald in the Sea
