hope you guys find a place where you belong


well, unless you want to remain free roamers



Strange that Canada didn't accept, we'd take in just about anyone

VERSE 1:
WE LEFT OUR HOME IN IRELAND MANY YEARS AGO
AND CROSSED THE WIDE ATLANTIC TO A PLACE CALLED MIMICO
JUST OUTSIDE TORONTO WE STARTED OUR NEW LIFE
FAR FROM DEAR OULD IRELAND HER TROUBLES AND HER STRIFE

VERSE 2:
RAISED WITH LOVE AND MUSIC WE KNEW THE OLD SONGS WELL
I MET BIG JIM FROM BELFAST AND TOGETHER WE DID GELL
IT WAS DERRY’S QUAY AND BRIGID FLYNN AND WHISKEY IN THE JAR
WHEN JOE WOULD SING KELLSWATER THERE WAS QUIET IN THE BAR

CHORUS:
A BAND WITHOUT A COUNTRY A BAND WITHOUT A HOME
AND YET WE’RE ALWAYS WELCOME NO MATTER WHERE WE ROAM
NO ONE WANTS TO CLAIM US NO ONE KNOWS WE’RE THERE
A BAND WITHOUT A COUNTRY IS OUR CROSS TO BEAR

VERSE 3:
WE TRAVELLED CROSS THE COUNTRY TO CANADA’S WESTERN SHORE
WILL WAS SINGING CHILDREN’S SONGS ‘TWAS THERE HE JUMPED ON BOARD
WE LEFT FOR CALIFORNIA WITH A POCEKTFUL OF DREAMS
THE GOODSHIP IRISH ROVER WAS SAILING AT FULL STEAM

VERSE 4:
THE ICEHOUSE AND THE TROUBADOUR BECAME OUR STOMPING GROUNDS
THE PURPLE ONION HUNGRY i THE CIRCUIT WE WENT ROUND
THE BITTEREND THE LUMBERMILL AND MECCA WERE THE CREAM
WE PLAYED THEM ALL FROM EAST TO WEST AND ALL SPOTS IN BETWEEN

VERSE 5:
SHEL WAS WRITING STORES AND SINGING ON THE SIDE
HE LET US HAVE HIS UNICORN AND WE TOOK IT FOR A RIDE
IT SERVED US WELL A GOOD FEW YEARS FIFTY COMES TO MIND
WHEREVER WE WENT ROVING ROUND PROVIDENCE WAS KIND

VERSE 6:
NOT IRISH ENOUGH FOR IRELAND THAT’S HARD TO UNDERSTAND
AND CANADA TURNED HER BACK BECAUSE WE’RE NOT FROM NEWFOUNDLAND
SO WE’LL LEAVE IT TO THE PEOPLE OUR FANS BEYOND COMPARE
THE ONES WHO HEAR THE MUSIC OF THE BOYS FROM GOD KNOWS WHERE

VERSE 7:
GOLD RECORDS ON THE WALL A DOORWAY TO THE PAST
MEMORIES TO PONDER ON BUT MEMORIES NEVER LAST
BUT MUSIC LIVES FOREVER AND WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE A SONG
BUT STILL I HAVE TO WONDER WHERE THE HELL DO WE BELONG

George, I agree, great song, and a great tale to go with it. Having rediscovered you and your music...whether it's a full-fledged movie or at least some kind of documentary, SOMEONE needs to come talk to you and the surviving Rovers about your group history, honestly. The fact you've kept the spirit of Irish folk music around for some many years, and been so welcome all over the world, that story is worth sharing.

Thanks for giving me chills George! The Irish Rovers story is an epic tale that needs to be shared with the world. I don’t think the younger generation knows just how popular this amazing group was and for George to continue the legacy as frontman for the band is heart warming. A movie doc should be made. Just the few stories Will Millar shared with me of the early days of The Irish Rovers had me yearning for more!
