SHADOW OF O'CASEY
Tommy Sands

CHORUS: There was joy, there was sorrow, there were rocky roads to follow
And dreams for tomorrow when times were unkind
There were moments of glory and thousands of stories
Always before me - those were the times.

There was fear in the light of the morning and your childhood eyes did burn,
You could feel the pain inside them but the pain outside as well,
For the slums of Dublin called you to rise against the tide
You took their songs of sorrow and you gave them songs of pride. CHORUS

When the smoke of change was rising you pondered with your pen,
Were there new horizons or the old with a different name?
And the answers to your questions still knock upon our door
Are the strong still rich now and are the weak still poor? CHORUS

There were times you were lost and lonely, O'Casey all alone
The two edged sword of truth it cut you to the bone,
But I still can hear your singing and still can see your smile
For you opened the gate to the sweet meadows of the Summer time. CHORUS
