Tc,
watched it twice already, second time with the boys.  It was great, you really captured the sense of the ex pats abroad. I have never heard that song before, very sentimental.
Hope you have plenty more in the near future to share, made my night.
Will have to show the family.

Gee, Band ... thanks for reminding me although you didn't know I needed a reminder, kat. You must be a mind reader. A singer / song writer named Chris Ward from Buncrana sent me a link to his website. I was going to create a link and ask him to link back to the Forum.

Hi guys. You will notice I am posting the link all the time. I'm thinking that some people come to the link and don't start at the beginning so they never see the original link posting and are wondering what the hell we are talking about. I will try it for a while to see how it works out. Coats

"so lift your eyes across the sea and wish you're homeward bound"...not a dry eye in here. .that's it, I am going to have "my day" doing the sites of the video on my trip home in June.Just me and a clean hanky. I remember going back to Scotland once and sitting on the ferry with tears streaming as it left the docks.
    One more view and listen, and then to bed with a  tearful but warm heart.Coats, you know how to 'hit the spot', thanks again...will drag out the guitar and try to learn that song even though the voice has long gone and the guitar wrist is wrecked.

Hi Shakey Shamrock. I live in Vancouver. BC. Canada. They are photos which I get from the internet and put them together with a song. Add some transition and there you go. If you look in Belfast Chat you will see others including Green Glens of Antrim. Coats

I think the Flames will go a long way, they seem to have got into a winning state at just the right time just like the Oilers last year.

Yeah, and what about those Oilers? I've been listening to sports talk shows with callers wanting McTavish, Simpson and Huddy along with Lowe to be fired! I think all their problems started when Pronger wanted out and we didn't get immediate help from it.I must say that I have been impressed with the rookies that they've had to call up what with injuries and all.    There's always next year.

 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

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.

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.
