Counting The Miles Lyrics - A song about County Laois which was recorded by Paddy Reilly.

Chorus
Nearer to Laois every mile I go.
Back to old Erins green shore
Back once again where I long to be.
In the county I do adore
 
Verse
Deep in the midlands of Erin
There’s a county I’m longing to see
Though its been many years since I left there
It holhs such fond merories for me
Sweet County Laois you’re my homeland
To me nowhere else is the same
And now fhat I am boarding this jet plane
Your face I will see again
 
Chorus
Theres Mount Melic, Mount Charles, and Port Laois,
Rathdowney, the Swan, Kilmahoe,
It still holds such beautiful memories
Of days I spent there long ago
Ballyfin, Ballyrone ,Ballylinen,
The beauty of Comras so fair
Your Heavenly Mountains and Valleys
Once more I will breath your air,
 
Chorus
Though its been many years since I’ve been there
Your always in my dreams
I’ve never forgotten those places
So often I’ve been theret seems
Your rivers and streams are so peaceful
Your people so gentle and kind
My foot steps at last are returning
To where I’ll find peace of mind.
