the wild geese

The Wild Geese.
( Mal Waite)


I know that soon I must go and leave you
who can tell when we'll meet again ?
The wild goose calls and I must follow
even though it brings you pain.
But when I'm far away please remember
come what may I will always care.
And when you hear the wild geese calling
think of me and I'll be right there.

The land I've worked was once my father's
I hoped some day it would be my son's.
But when the crops began to falter
no living there could then be won.
And soon a ship will raise it's anchor
- to Americay I have paid my fare.
And when you hear the wild geese calling
think of me and I'll be right there.

My dearest dear who knows whenever
I'll come again to this land I love.
But as we part amongst the heather
this vow I'll make by the stars above.
That unto you I will prove faithful
and this promise I do make my dear.
That when you hear the wild geese calling
think of me and I'll be right there.

Yes think of me and I'll be right there.


"The tune of O'Carolan's Plaxty Irwin was too singable to be
reserved for musicians"
