THE ROADS OF DROMARA

 

Thereís a little town on a hillside

In the heart of the county Down,

Where a road runs away to the mountain

And a road to the sea runs down

 

Refrain:

Runaway roads of Dromara

Wander the wide world round.

Home-again roads of Dromara

Lead back to the heart of Down.

 

I spent the days of my childhood

Happy with my friends at play,

But the runaway roads of Dromara

Kept calling me away.

 

Refrain:

Runaway roads of Dromara etc

 

I took the road of the morning

When the sky was blue above,

Now the shadowy road of evening

Winds back to the place I love.

 

Refrain:

Runaway roads of Dromara etc

 

Though Iíve travelled the whole world over

And seen many different sights,

Thereís nothing to compare with Dromara

On a peaceful summerís night.

 

Refrain:

Runaway roads of Dromara etc

 

Thereís a little town on a hillside

In the heart of the county Down,

Where a road runs away to the mountain

And a road to the sea runs down

 

Refrain:

Runaway roads of Dromara etc
