The Forgotten Guy




                          The Forgotten Guy               April 14, 2013

I sit alone far away from home, I think about my country on my own
It sounded good when I left home now I'm alone and watch the phone
I said goodbye to old Ireland dear, I said goodbye to my honey
Flew the big bird to the new land for the other things and money
Sixteen lanes on the road to success, I ask myself why?
To live in the sky like an elephants eye, sometimes I want to cry
I visit the bar and hear Irelands tears, a place they've never seen
They sing songs about Ireland; about the town you know what I mean
A few drinks later their dream becomes real, about an Ireland I've never seen
I move on with a song to a place I belong, on my own just me being free
The highways and the bars with songs of other things
I walk the streets alone, I think of about my country on my own
The music on the radio plays take me home to country roads
 I'll be in my country soon; I want to go home to Irelands country roads
I sit alone far away from home, I think about my country on my own
It sounded good when I left home now I'm alone and watch the phone
