	        Verse 1:  

D               A 
Walking all the day  
     G    D/F#         G/E     A           D  
Near tall towers where falcons build their nests 
D                  A 
Silver-winged they fly  
     Em       Bm      G       A        D 
They know the call of freedom in their breasts  
G              Asus        A 
Saw Black Head against the sky  
      D       Bm         D        G      A 
Where twisted rocks they run down to the sea  


G      A       D 
Living on your western shore  
Bm         D        G         A 
Saw summer sunsets, asked for more  
  G        A      D      A 
I stood by your Atlantic Sea  
    Em     Bm       G A  D 
And sang a song for I-re-land 

Verse 2:  

Drinking all the day  
In old pubs where fiddlers love to play  
Saw one touch the bow  
He played a reel which seemed so grand and gay  
Stood on Dingle Beach and cast  
In wild foam we found Atlantic bass  


Verse 3:  

Talking all the day  
With true friends who try to make you stay  
Telling jokes and news  
Singing songs to pass the time away  
Watched the Galway salmon run  
Like silver dancing, darting in the sun  


Verse 4:  

Dreaming in the night  
I saw a land where no one had to fight  
Waking in your dawn  
I saw you crying in the morning light  
Sleeping where the falcons fly  
They twist and turn all in your air-blue sky
