Irish Song Lyrics - Newgrange Bru na BoinneAuthor: Wolfe Tones

Your mysteries lay hidden in stones that can't speak Thru' time all your wondrous knowledge we seek Be ye tomb or a temple we'd like to know why On midwinter's morning you seek light from the sky Your white quartz stones must have brightened the days When the sun it shone down and reflected its rays You refuse us a key or some Rosetta Stone We just gaze on the circles, the motifs and bone Sing away Bru na Boinne on the banks of the Boyne Fal de da for your glory would not yield to time Glory-O to the men and the women laid to rest Who brought greatness to Ireland, the Isle of the Blessed From your pillars of grandeur an answer is sought When the tombs of the Pharoahs were only a thought Irish folk in their labour looked up from the Boyne To see standing a monument that would not yield to time You saw chieftains, Na Fianna and monks stopped to call As they trampled the hills onto Tara's Royal Halls And they watched on the cradle of our art and design That inspired Irish artists much later in time Sing away Bru na Boinne on the banks of the Boyne Fal de da for your glory would not yield to time Glory-O to the men and the women laid to rest Who brought greatness to Ireland, the Isle of the Blessed For you're set in a county still Royal with its arms And a river of beauty with countless wild charms And you stand there majestic a tower on the plain And your passage of wonder a secret remains So be proud all of Ireland of history long gone That inspired generations of men later on Your age is your greatness and a testament still As you stand Bru na Boinne on a Co. Meath hill Sing away Bru na Boinne on the banks of the Boyne Fal de da for your glory would not yield to time Glory-O to the men and the women laid to rest Who brought greatness to Ireland, the Isle of the Blessed Sing away Bru na Boinne on the banks of the Boyne Fal de da for your glory would not yield to time Glory-O to the men and the women laid to rest Who brought greatness to Ireland, the Isle of the Blessed
