Lyrics

When my love said to me Meet me down by the gallow tree For it's sad news I bring About this old town and all that it's offering Some say troubles abound Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down One day we'll return here When the Belfast Child sings again Brothers, sisters, where are you now? As I look for you right through the crowd All my life here I've spent With my faith in God the Church and the Government But there's sadness abound Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down One day we'll return here When the Belfast Child sings again When the Belfast Child sings again So come back Billy, won't you come on home? Come back Mary, you've been away so long The streets are empty, and your mother's gone The girls are crying, it's been oh so long And your father's calling, come on home Won't you come on home, won't you come on home? Come back people, you've been gone a while And the war is raging, through the Emerald Isle That's flesh and blood man, that's flesh and blood All the girls are crying but all's not lost The streets are empty, the streets are cold Won't you come on home, won't you come on home? The streets are empty Life goes on One day we'll return here When the Belfast Child sings again When the Belfast Child sings again
