As I stand on the hills of Mount Tempest
I can see the sun sink in the west
And I know trhat where 'ere Imay wander
It's the place I will always love best
It's the home of my dreams and my memories
Where I first learned to crawl and to stand
And it was often I would walk through the wildwoods
On our 21 Acres of land


So farewell to the green fiels of Ireland
To the family and friends I adore
In the morning I'll cross the Atlantic
And I'll work as a farmer no more
For a man nees a wage for a living
And we all need to know where we stand
And you cant keep a wife and a family
On just 21 Acres of land

Short break

My parents worked hard for a living
And I know they had little to spare
But there's some things thewy gave me in plenty
Such as loving and kindness and care
But the world and the times they are changing
And my parents may not understand
That you cant keep a wife and a family
On just 21 Acres of land

Chorus + last 2 lines
