Home to Bearna


What Irish based CD could be called truly Irish without some sort of song about a girl with Sunday drinking routine?  The Great Highland Bagpipes make their appearance on this song with a traditional Scottish tune (if you know the name of the tune, let me know :-)).


In Scartaglenn there lived a lass and every Sunday after mass

She would go and take a glass before going home to Bearna


We won’t go home along the road for fear that you might act the rogue

We won’t go home along the road, but we’ll go home to Bearna


We won’t go home across the fields the big thornines could stick in your heels

We won’t go home across the fields, but we’ll go home to Bearna


We won’t go home around the glen for fear your blood might rise again

We won’t go home around the glen, but we’ll go home to Bearna


We won’t go down the milk boreen the night is bright we might be seen

We won’t go down the milk boreen, but we’ll go home to Bearna


We won’t go home across the bog for fear we might meet Kearney’s dog

We won’t go home across the bog, but we’ll go home to Bearna
