N 17

Well I didn't see much future when I left the Christian Brothers School
So I waved it goodbye with a wistful smile and I left the girls in June
And sometimes when I'm reminiscing I see the Pre-fabs and my old friends
And I know that they'll be changed or gone by the time I get home again

Chorus
And I wish I was on that N 17 ( stone walls and the grass is green)
And I wish I was on that N 17 (..........
Travellin' with just my thoughts and dreams

 ......instrumental....

Well the oul fella left me to Shannon,it was the last time I travelled that road
And as we turned left at Clare-Galway I could feel alump in my throat
As I pictured the 1000s of times that I travelled that well-worn track
And I know that things will be different if I ever decide to go back

Chorus....

 ......instrumental........

Now as I tumble down highways on filthy overcrowded trains
These no one to talk to in transit so I sit there and daydream in vain
And behind all these monologue problems of livig on a foreign soil
I can still see the twists and turns in the road and the square to the town that I toiled

Chorus....

instrumental....ad lib last line
