Zhenya Lyr Req: The Kerry Hills (Brendan Begley) (14) Lyr Req: The Kerry Hills (Brendan Begley) 05 Oct 07


I heard Brendan Begley sing this at a concert a few weeks ago, and would like to learn it. It's on his CD "We Won't Go Home 'Til Morning." I have the CD, but I'm having trouble making out some of the lyrics, and I was wondering if anyone had them.

This is what I have so far (and I suspect not all of these words are correct):

The Kerry Hills

With great affection and recollection
I oft times wander
Oer memory's lane
My dreams of childhood
By glen and wildwood
Where I roamed and rambled
In my boyhood days

Chorus:
But ah sad memory
Is all ***
And in my bosom sadder thoughts instill
Of the days so merry
When we plucked the berry
On the verdant slopes
Of the Kerry hills

I've seen the Atlantic
Both wild and frantic
Swirl those cliffs
With her angry foam
Swing back defeated
Like ***   retreating
*** foam and ***
From my Kerry home

(Chorus)

I wonder where
Are all my schoolmates
Some are dead
And far and gone
Some are weeping
Or in churchyards sleeping
Where the West ****
With ****

(Chorus)
