As I leave behind Neidin

Top of the morning to you, on St. Patrick’s Day! This beautiful Irish song has been going round and round in my head for a while, and I just had to share it with you.

First verse

As I leave behind Neidin
It’s like purple splashed on green
My soul is strangely fed
Through the winding hills ahead
And she plays a melody
On wind and streams for me


Won’t you remember
Won’t you remember
Won’t you remember me.

Song by Jimmy MacCarthy.
