Words and Music: Stephanie Davis, Jenny Yates and Garth Brooks


They say mother earth is breathing
with each wave that finds the shore
her soul rises in the evening
For to open twilight's door.
Her eyes are the stars in heaven
Watching o'er us all the while
And her heart is in Ireland
Deep within the Emerald Isle.

We are forty against hundreds
In someone else's bloody war
We know not why we're fighting
or what we're dying for
They will storm us in the morning
When the sunlight turns the sky
Death is waiting for its dance now
Fate has sentanced us to die.

Ireland, I am comming home
I can see your rolling fields of green and fences made of stone
I am reaching out
Won't you take my hand?
I'm coming home Ireland.

Oh the captain he lay bleeding
and I can hear him callin' me
"These mem are yours for the leading
Show them to their destiny"
As I look up all around me
I see the ragged, tired and torn.
I tell him to make ready
'Cos we're not waiting for the morn.

Ireland, I am comming home
I can see your rolling fields of green and fences made of stone
I am reaching out
Won't you take my hand?
I'm coming home Ireland.

Now the fog is deep and heavy
As we forge the dark and fear
We can hear their horses breathing
as in silence we draw near,
and there are no words to be spoken
just a look to say "goodbye".
I draw a breath and night is broken
as I scream our battle cry.

Ireland, I am comming home
I can see your rolling fields of green and fences made of stone
I am reaching out
Won't you take my hand?
I'm comming home Ireland.

Yes, I am home, Ireland.

We were forty against hundreds...  (fade)
