Lyrics Belfast Child

When my love said to me meet me down by the gallow tree
For it's sad news
I bring about this old town and all that it's offering
Some say troubles abound
Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down
One day we'll return here when the Belfast Child sings again
Brothers, sisters
Where are you now?
As I look for you right through the crowd
All my life here
I've spent with my faith in God the Church and the Government
Some say troubles abound
Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down
One day we'll return here when the Belfast Child sings again
When the Belfast Child sings again
So come back Billy
Won't you come on home?
Come back Mary
You've been away so long
The streets are empty and your mother's gone
The girls are crying it's been oh so long
And your father's calling come on home
Won't you come on home?
Come on home?
Come on home?
Ah come on people
You've been gone a while
And the war is raging through the Emerald Isle
That's flesh and blood, yeah that's flesh and blood
All the girls are crying but all's not lost
The streets are empty streets are cold
Won't you come on home?
Won't you come on home?
The streets are empty
Life goes on
One day we'll return here when the Belfast Child sings again
When the Belfast Child sings again
