 From Belfast lough she stood and watched
Her sons and daughters roam
Too far off lands across the sea
They left their native home
But now she calls them back to her
From all the world around
It's time to come back home again
Your heart's in Belfast town
So lift your eyes across the sea
And wish you're homeward bound
It's time to come back home again
Your home's in Belfast town
So lift your eyes across the sea
And wish you're homeward bound
It's time to come back home again
Your home's in Belfast town
 
Though she may be old and grey
And scarred by bomb and gun
She sometimes bowed her head and cried
For her divided sons
But now she's fresh and bright and new
Embracing all around
Be proud to lift your head and say
My home's in Belfast town
So lift your eyes across the sea
And wish you're homeward bound
It's time to come back home again
Your home's in Belfast town
So lift your eyes across the sea
And wish you're homeward bound
It's time to come back home again
Be proud to lift your head and say
My home's in Belfast town

st louises and the shankill made the original video in the early 90s, we crossed from belfast to scotland to film early morning scenes and then belfast city for the rest and the soundtrack was recorded by a group of musicians from the shankill.

Nostalgia-a sweet and beautiful thing.
Reality of life,however,is a very different thing.
Those who have left,we who have stayed-we live as we find ourselves.
Having said that-the early years are still within each and every one of us.
That is a truly wonderful thing.

Justice for all the innocent/ unarmed People who were
Gunned down by the British Soldiers,
For no other reason then their religion,were murdered.

Astor thanks for the link it was great. Though it doesn't make me home sick I live in Belfast.
The song sounds like it was written by a singer friend of mine in California (Sean McVicker) who has written many songs about home and Belfast.
Thanks again.

Hello Astor,

Watched the link and found a u tube clip of an Irish American General singing " A PARTING GLASS ".  I've just spent the last 20 mins listening to various people singing it and reliving some old memories.   :)
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...
