This one is lovely:

DOWN BY THE LAGAN SIDE
(Tommy Sands comp)

Well, I thought she was a vision that stopped me with her smile
Down by the river, we walked along in style
She says: you're welcome back again - and won't you stay awhile
Down by the Lagan side.

CHORUS: And when we dance, we'll dance together
When we cry, we'll hold each other
And when we love, we'll love forever
Down by the Lagan side.

I said: who owns that music, so full of joy and pain
That the pipers and the harpers and the Lambeg drummers play
She said: who owns the teardrops, falling in the rain
Down by the Lagan side.

And do you not remember, we once walked side by side
And the bells of Belfast city sang in harmony and pride
The past it has been taken, but the future's yours and mine
Down by the Lagan side.
