Separation due to emigrating from Ireland to America, this haunting song is voiced by the one left behind.
A Stór Mo Chroí:
A Stór Mo Chroí, when you're far away
From the home that you'll soon be leaving.
It's many a time by night and by day
That your heart will be sorely grieving.
For the stranger's land may be bright and fair
And rich in all treasures golden.
You'll pine, I know, for the long, long ago
And the love that is never olden.
A Stór Mo Chroí, in the stranger's land
There is plenty of wealth and wailing.
While gems adorn the rich and grand
There are faces with hunger, paling.
The road is weary and hard to tread
And the lights of the city blinds you.
Won't you turn, A Stór , to Erin's shore
And the love that you left behind you.
A Stór Mo Chroí, when the evening's sun
Over mountain and meadow's falling.
Won't you turn away from the throng and list
And maybe you'll hear me calling.
For the sound of a voice the is surely late
For somebody's speedy returning.
Aroon, aroon, won't you come back soon
To the one that will always love you.
