this song is as old as ireland | Reviewer: padraig o conait | 10/16/12

This is a song anyone can sing, VAN Moorrison has no doubt put his great celtic voice to the song and, of course the melody that brings the song to life he has totaly relaxed into the words and the music ,i can see myself , living my dreams tru this lament .as indeed if it was happening ,It is so irish , and will have some truth in it some where . and as the song says My boyhood days and my own relations ,have all passed on like the melting snow , my mother used to sing this c song a long time before Van , but she wont sing this song ever again , its a very old irish song , thanks Van and thanks mom ,
