Celtic Scarf and a Pin

Celtic Scarf and a Pin July 23, 2014

 At an east end pub at a Celtic Bar
 Paradise was close, not very far
 Music great, love every song
 Feeling proud, I stayed so long
 Fell in love with the Celtic song
 Songs of the past, songs that are new
 Songs of my culture and never blue
 I'd had a few like the bhoys around
 An old man stood without a sound
 With a Celtic scarf and a shamrock pin
 He stood alone and began to sing
 He sang a song, it didn't take long
 People around with tears in their eye
 The old man sang and looked to the sky
 It was a song about martyrs, the men of ten
 The men that died for Ireland, we all said amen
 He mentioned their names, every one
 At the end of the song his deed was done
 He straightened his scarf and kissed his pin
 He smiled as he left with a big Irish grin
 At an east end pub at a Celtic Bar
 Paradise was close, not very far
