The Vale of Kerrynough
(Morrison)

I've been seen talking to these so-called people,
Please forgive me if I talk to you,
No one around here ever wants to listen,
And I was hoping that you'd here me through.

You see, I'm just one of life's sad cases,
I go from day to day believing you,
Maybe you could fill these empty places,
And smile upon the vale of Kerrynough.

Kerrynough is full of our proud people,
All without a job without a hope,
All the mills and mines are closed and boarded,
All people find life's just to hard to cope,

I remember times we all had plenty,
Smiling faces " let's go to the coast",
Young brides bloomed in spring, dad so contented,
Sunday morning sat down to a roast.

We listened to the likes of Archie Andrews,
Rae's a laugh was far beyond our ken,
We did not know this life would discontinue,
And take the very souls away from men.

I've been seen talking to these so-called people,
Please forgive me if I talk to you,
Maybe you could ring the silent steeple,
And smile upon the vale of Kerrynough,
Smile upon the face of Kerrynough.
