Town I Loved (mp3)

"By Phil Coulter, This is one of my favourite songs in the world. It's about Derry in Northern Ireland, but nowadays it makes me think of New York."

      Song For Johnny

      On a grey misty morning, we drove South from Dublin
      Through the Featherbed Mountains where clouds kiss the turf
      My first look at Ireland through the eyes of an old man
      In the green hills of Wicklow, the place of his birth

      The hills were aglow with the fire of an emerald
      The breeze was alive with the wildflow'rs' bouquet
      Not in my life had I seen such great beauty
      As in Wicklow's dear mountains and valleys that day

      We travelled the paths that he walked as a young man
      The valleys and hillsides he roamed long ago
      is life was the land that his fathers had left him
      The green hills of Wicklow, the hills of his home

      In the Vale of Avoca, I wept at the beauty
      We stood on the bank where the bright waters meet
      The words of the poet still haunt that day's mem'ry
      There was ne'er in the wide world a valley so sweet

      Now in scrapbooks and mem'ries of places I've travelled
      The images always have seemed so alive
      But there is one picture I'll keep with me always
      The green hills of Wicklow, through old Johnny's eyes

      I still see the places he knew as a young man
      The valleys and hillsides he roamed long ago
      His life was the land that his fathers had left him
      The green hills of Wicklow, the hills of his home

Written by Wes in 1992 following a visit to County Wicklow with my dear friend Neville's Dad, Johnny Stewart.
