The Sky Road 
Songwriter: Jimmy McCarthy 
 
Lyrics:
Danny's made his mind up
He's leaving for America
He's leaving for America
Leaving all of us behind
He says there's nothing here not drenched in beer
In blood and retribution
And the wealth's distribution's
Been weighing heavy on his mind

And he knows that he'll regret the leaving
Knows that he will pine for grieving
For the sky road by the singing sea
And all of us behind

Danny looks so lovely working in the fields
Or dancing like a wild one
Sparks flying around his heels
But his friends all gone before him
From the sacred ground that bore them
Now they wonder does she scorn them
For giving up the land

And they know that they'll regret the leaving
Know that they will pine for grieving
For the sky road by the singing sea
And all of us behind

Danny's made his mind up
He's leaving for America
He's leaving for America
Leaving all of us behind
And I wonder does he know I love him
All below and none above him
As I sit here by the singing sea
Alone and left behind

Repeat
