The Fureys  26th June 2015 by/Tony Gorman

Their music touches all our souls
Their lyrics fill our hearts
Their melody’s echo within our heads
Right from the very start

My Song of Emigration
Will take us back in years
And The Green Fields of France
Can reduce a man to tears

And the song they sang of their Old Man
Reminds us of our dads
The things we learned because of him
Way back when we were lads

And Steal Away was quite a song
Of starting life anew
For we leave our memories far behind
For some the best to do

And with The Sound of Thunder
It brought the racing scene to you
And Come by the Hills is a vision
Of living in dreams that we do

And Irish Eyes is for every girl
From the days when we were young
And Silver Threads is our ageing years
When our youthful years have gone

Each song they sing is meaningful
And sang right from the soul
Long may their melodies fill our minds
For their tunes will not grow old

The Fureys are one of my favourite ballad groups so I put a medley of their songs together to make up a tribute poem in their honour.
I hope all the Fureys fans looking in on the site enjoy the poem.
