‘Miles and Miles’ by Eugene Brosnan (eugenebrosnan.com)
Though there today to many i would be a stranger for few there now on sight would recognize me
I will always be a fellow from Millstreet this is all that i ever can be
When people ask me where i hail from i say Claraghatlea near the Town of Millstreet
A twenty five minute walk through the old fields to the Lyre where the rivers do meet
The other day by the sea at Lady Bay in the City of Warrnambool
Far south of the Town in view of Clara where i went to Primary School
I met a beautiful woman in her early thirties a tourist from Germany her shoulder length wavy hair as dark as the wing of a crow
When she asked me what part of Ireland i am from i said Millstreet she said this is a Town of i do know
As the Hometown of the singer songwriter and musician Eugene Brosnan of him for years i have been a fan
I know that he does hail from Millstreet he is such a talented man
Because of Eugene she does know of Millstreet in Duhallow’s green countryside
The fellow raised in Murphy’s Terrace is obviously famed Worldwide
On the walkway in Lady Bay in view of Middle Island where the Merri to the Pacific does crawl
A tourist who did know of Millstreet it is a small World after all
She is a fan of Eugene Brosnan though she has never been in Millstreet Town
Where he did begin his life’s journey a journey that led him to renown
Though she never may walk through the old fields to the Lyre where the rivers do meet
As a fan of the singer songwriter Eugene Brosnan she knows of the Town of Millstreet
She waved me a goodbye in parting a future memory for me to recall
There is indeed truth in the saying that it is a small World after all.
