Bantry Bay - John McCormack (麦考梅克)

As I'm sitting all alone in the gloaming


It might have been but yesterday


That we watched the fisher's sails all homing

Till the little herring fleet at anchor lay


Then the fisher girls with baskets swinging

Came running down the old stone way


Every lassie to her sailor lad was singing


Ah welcome back to bantry bay


Then we heard the pipers sweet note tuning

And all the lassies turned to hear


As they mingled with a soft voice crooning


Till the music floated down the wooden pier


Save you kindly colleens all said the piper

Hands across and trip it while I play


And the tender sound of song and merry dancing


Stole softly over bantry bay


As I'm sitting all alone in the gloaming


The shadows of the past draw near


And I see the lovely faces round me

That used to glad the old front pier


Some have gone upon their last logged homing

Some are left but they are old and gray


And we're waiting for the tide in the gloaming


To sail upon the great highway


To the land of rest unending


All peacefully from bantry bay
