Liner Notes: 

I haven't written an Irish one this year so wrote this one this morning.


My Sweet Irish Heather
© 2019 Cindy Prince

I came to Ireland one summer
I fell in love with a lass
We were young and restless
Wished the days wouldn't go by so fast

She was named for the heather
That covered the Irish land
In my mind I still go back there
To my Heather's lovely homeland

Oh how I miss my Heather
I long for her tender touch yet
Who would I have been without her
If we'd never have met
Oh how I miss my sweet Heather

I remember lying in the heather
With the most beautiful lass in the world
I wish she could still be my girl

I left when summer ended
It nearly tore me apart
I know even now this truth
My Irish Heather has half my heart

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Nicely passionate and bittersweet, conveying a feel of timeless romance. It will surely sound great with Celtic arrangements.

Great imagery, Cindy, with the heather. You've created a sad story but very universal too. Full of desire and longing. I like the title a lot! I hope to hear it!
