Bangor Town
Foy Vance Lyrics


I set my sails
And betrothed, the wind will guide me
To draw upon the North East shore
Of the emerald island
County Down

Where Bangor town
Is now and forever calling
And recalls me by the shore
At peace
In Silence

I sit down by the water
And I glory at my host
Let the rivers roll over like lovers
Oh brothers and sisters and I
Good lord you know we need it most
Our minds are tethered but our hearts are wild
In Bangor town
County Down

Let Joys abound
Back in Fealtys bar on High Street
Where we'll raise a glass to all a fair tomorrow
We'll be found
Amidst the sound
Of our laughter ever roaring
As we drink our fill where once
We drowned our sorrows

I sit down by the water
And I glory at my host
Let the rivers roll over like lovers
Oh brothers and sisters and I
Good lord you know we need it most
Our minds are tethered but our hearts are wild
In Bangor town
County Down

And where Jerry wails
Writing signs outside the Helmsman
Beware you passers by what lays inside there
Oh he testified
And Julie cried, reminiscing on her story
Surrounded once by glory now by violence

I sit down by the water
And I glory at my host
Let the rivers roll over like lovers
Oh brothers and sisters and I
Good lord you know we need it most
Our minds are tethered but our hearts are wild
In Bangor town
County Down

BANGOR TOWN LYRICS

[Verse 1: Foy Vance]
I set my sails
And be true the wind will guide me
To draw upon the North East shore
Of the emerald island
County Down

[Verse 2: Foy Vance]
Where Bangor town
Is now and forever calling
And recalls me by the shore
At peace, in Silence

[Chorus: Foy Vance]
I sit down by the water
And I glory at my host
Let the rivers roll over like lovers
Oh brothers and sisters and I
Good lord you know we need it most
Our minds are tethered but our hearts are wild
In Bangor town
County Down

[Verse 3: Foy Vance]
Let Joys abound
Back in Fealtys bar on High Street
Where we’ll raise a glass to all a fair tomorrow
We’ll be found amidst the sound
Of our laughter ever roaring
As we drink our fill where once
We drowned our sorrows

"Bangor Town"

I set my sails
And betrothed, the wind will guide me
To draw upon the North East shore
Of the emerald island
County Down

Where Bangor town
Is now and forever calling
And recalls me by the shore
At peace
In silence

I sit down by the water
And I glory at my host
Let the rivers roll over like lovers
Oh brothers and sisters and I
Good lord you know we need it most
Our minds are tethered but our hearts are wild
In Bangor town
County Down

Let Joys abound
Back in Fealtys bar on High Street
Where we'll raise a glass to all a fair tomorrow
We'll be found
Amidst the sound
Of our laughter ever roaring
As we drink our fill where once
We drowned our sorrows

I sit down by the water
And I glory at my host
Let the rivers roll over like lovers
Oh brothers and sisters and I
Good lord you know we need it most
Our minds are tethered but our hearts are wild
In Bangor town
County Down

And where Jerry wails
Writing signs outside the Helmsman
Beware you passers by what lays inside there
Oh he testified
And Julie cried, reminiscing on her story
Surrounded once by glory now by violence

I sit down by the water
And I glory at my host
Let the rivers roll over like lovers
Oh brothers and sisters and I
Good lord you know we need it most
Our minds are tethered but our hearts are wild
In Bangor town
County Down

I'm quite glad this doesn't have millions and millions of views, kind of makes it special to the few people who recognise beautiful music
