At the tender age of eighteen years he stood on Dublin’s shore,
And took the boat to Holyhead like many did before.
With no one there to say goodbye, so too familiar scenes,
With not a lot of money, but a pocketful of dreams.
When he set foot on England’s soil his new life it began,
He had dreams of owning property and being a wealthy man.
To have a wife and family, someone to call his own,
And maybe when the time was right he’d make his way back home.
The bright lights of the city turned night time into day,
And offered many promises to a lad so far away.
He made the most of city life as joy he tried to find
And his friends in County Galway all seemed to leave his mind.
