Heart's With You (Irish version)

This is a rewrite of the song of the same name posted earlier. When Bun' Ber E recorded Unplugged, I wanted to include an original just to see how it would go. Thought occurred to me that this sentiment would go down well with the Irish sense of humour so I re-wrote the verses to fit Irish places and experiences. Based on the sales evidence, I was not entirely sucessful.

If you'd like to hear this tune, you can listen to the streaming version here. This is the Unplugged recording of it - it's very basic. At some stage I'd like to redo it with a bigger and more genuine Celtic arrangement. Stay tuned for that.

Update: If you feel generous you can now buy the version of this song released on Bun' Ber E's debut CD "Unplugged" from iTunes, or MP3tunes.com, or Payplay.FM. If you have a different favourite online store, search for it there and if it's not there, let me know so I can put it there.

Update: Youtube now makes standard video of songs release through CDBaby. Here's this one:

Heart's with you (Irish version).

I left my knees in Kerry's mountains
I left my hands beneath Wicklow
I lost my mind in a bar somewhere
But my heart's with you wherever you may go.

Well the far-famed Kerry mountains tower above you.
They raise their pointy peaks toward the sky.
But there nothin' much up there
'Cept my lassie's fine brown hair.
Climbing up them mountains damn near made me cry.


Now beneath Wickow the mines are long abandoned
But unless you look you don't know what might be there.
We went diggin' for some gold
But the mine was pretty old
I wore out three picks and seven heads of hair.


In a bar somewhere I first laid eyes upon you
Your manner and your service were so kind
Well me belly had a hole
And you satisfied my soul
Then you took me out the back and blew my mind.

Chorus x 2
