Síoda # Finbar & The Green Fields of France.

Sun in September
A gift from above
To a wondrous creator
We send out our love
A gorgeous Burnese
The passing of Síoda
I hear a lament
Played by O Ríada
White Gold Coast waves
Well known to rip it
A trick old as peat
Blind meadow pipit
Shehy’s fair heather
First saw the Lee
Flow on like silver
And sing with the sea
The great Finbar Furey
Is seventy four
The Green Fields of France
Some blues and lots more
Thousands approaching
Our docks to depart
Golden spike through
The buffalo’s heart
O’Rahilly charged
Full tilt at his foe
His house was torn down
For progress…how low.

Beidh mé ar ais…Sláinte.
