Lyrics

As I roved to Connemara I heard an outlawed pipe
The mournful tune it played was mine.
I listened closely to isolate the sound
I wandered from the path the pipes were calling loudly.

Calling from the auld dark road.
Calling from the auld dark road.

Into the deep wood on an ancient track
I lost my way when the sky went black.
But through the darkness I kept a piper’s pace
I wondered through the night I could see your face there.

Calling from the auld dark road.
Calling from the auld dark road.

She’s calling me.

The dark road leads to the ruins of my home
The dreams we made before the Saxons had come.
But now the memory is all that I have left
The charred remains where my spirit slept.

Calling from the auld dark road.
Calling from the auld dark road.
(Repeat)
