Subject: RE: Lyr Req: New Lyrics Fiddler's Green
Hi guy's

John was kind enough to suggest we sing his new version and sent us the words. First and last verses are the usual ones sung from the first written version. In the middle are three new verses sung without chorus in between

Far over the foam lies the land of the Leal
The crossing, the voyage, the turn of the wheel
Where fabled valhalla once called to all men
and friends long forsaken may meet once again

Where all journeys end at the rim of the world
The banners of Avalon now are unfurled
And where is the boatman to bear me away
With the fast falling sun at the close of the day

warm westerley wind my old fairweather friend
Come whisper your welcome to dreams without end
Old songs and old stories ring out and ring true
In Tir na n'Ogs land where all things are made new


Fair winds
