Sally Broome Song Lyrics By Danny Doyle. This is a very sad sorth of lament and spoken story.I'ts from a very old danny doyle tape of mine. Danny puts a lot of feeling and compassion in to the spoken words, song and music Of this beautifull piece. Sent to me by Patrick Burke.

Wev’e seen our valley changing sally broome
They’ve come and rearanged us sally broome
They’ve taken all our lives
And turned us round
The day they brought the soldiers to our town
And the lights went out
In the valley sally broome.
 
 
2
(long spoken verse follows)
(including backround sad pipe music)

When you were young was this valley green
Did the heather grow beneath your toes
And you and some young man
Went running.
Ah, but you were hungry then
And the famine took your men
Your brother and your lover
To america.
They sent for you
When you had enough
But no letter ever came i find
There was just a line from some sad stranger
Who said
A boston winter took their lives
And desperate cold and alone they died.
When times when signs in windows said
No irish need apply
So if there is a song for ireland
It was written in the lines upon your face
And on the stone they placed above you
Sally broome 1856-1926
Here’s your piece of ireland
Rest in peace.

(this is sung slowly with guitar music backround)
Weve’e seen our valley
Changing sally broome
They’ve come and rearanged us sally broome
They’ve taken all our lives
And turned us round
The day they brought the soldiers to our town
And the lights went out
In the valley
Sally broome
And the lights went out in the valley
Sally broome
 
4
Our valley is growing dark now sally broome
Your stone is black with gun smoke sally broome
They’ve taken all our lives
And turned us round
That day the bloody soldiers
Burned our town
And the lights went
Out
In the valley sally broome
(song finishes off with a short sad pipe lament)
Sally broome(ashdown/mcps)
