An Exile's Dream Lyrics. Gerry Black And The Finnavons. This band came from Castleblaney Co. Monahan, the same small town that Big Tom comes from. This single was released in 1969. It's hard to know if it's a country or folk song, I'll guess country ? these lads were part of the Showband scene in Ireland during the 1960's and 70's.

When your heart's breaking up and your crying.
While breathing a cold foreign air.
And just when your home is so far far away.
A little dreaming and you can be there.
 
 
You can dream of your home in old Ireland,
In Roscommon or Longford, Westmeath.
Of the Shannon and Galway, the wild cliffs of Moher,
And the Blue Wash is citting beneath.
 
 
You can stand in The Vale Of Avoca,
Or in any a Phantoms Night Rem.
Was so strong and so sweet in the memory of Ireland,
Where the dreaming can be a journey's end.

When your heart's breaking up and your crying.
While breathing a cold foreign air.
And just when your home is so far far away.
A little dreaming and you can be there.

You can wander through Wexford or Sligo
Or through  Gort Innismore, Knock Kildare.
Oh so strong and so sweet is the memory of Ireland,
A little dreaming and you can be there.
