Hi,

This is the version that I know WM

THROUGH THE EYES OF AN IRISHMAN

When I was a boy 'round about three,
I remember my grandfather sayin' to me,
He said, "Learn to appreciate all that you see,
For one day it'll mean so much more to you".
Well, without realizing the words he did say,
Sure it started me seein' things a different way,
Just like the colours of the sun goin' down in the bay.
It was a sight I'll never forget.

And we'll all meet tonight, every child, woman and man,
For we know in our heart that we'll always be part
Of a proud and wonderful land.
Yes, we'll all meet tonight and we'll sing as loud as we can
Of an island so green that can only be seen
Through the eyes of an Irishman.

Oh, the days of my youth I spent searching around,
And I couldn't believe all the beauty I found,
Just like the flowers and trees growing up from the ground,
Full of colour and so full of life.
Well, at twenty-four years that's when I started to roam,
But it didn't take much to remind me of home,
And I think of all the places and people I've known,
That I may never see again.

Best wishes, Yvonne

There's a song on one of the Chieftains' albums called Lovely Sweet Banks of the Moy - would that be it? Try CDNow.com; I took a look, but the snip is in Windows Media, and Windows Media freezes my computer.

If it's any help to you this was recorded and sung by an Irish singer by the name of Dominic Kirwan and I am sure you will still find this disk. Sorry no more info to give but I hope this helps.
