Ellis Island - The Corrs

On the second Sunday
Annie be my guide
Liberty's a welcome
To an aching eye

We'll grow up together
Far away from home
Crossed the sea and ocean
To the land of hope

Kingstown to Liverpool
Crossing the Irish Sea
You gotta keep your wits on you
Where you lay your head
Six minute medical
Leaving no chalk on me
Goodbye Ellis Island, hello land of free

Every man and woman
Every girl and boy
Sing out Ellis Island
Sing a song of hope
Sing for us together
Sing we're not alone
Sing we'll go back someday
Sing we will belong

When the leaves are falling
Sky is upon the ground
We will come together
Sing of Ireland

Thanking Ellis Island
Thank you, USA
You gave us a home here
Crying a brand new day

Queenstown to New York bay
Wild Atlantic Ocean
You gotta keep your wits on you
Where you lay your head
Six minute medical
Leaving no chalk on me
Goodbye Ellis Island, hello land of free

Every man and woman
Every girl and boy
Sing out Ellis Island
Sing a song of hope
Sing for us together
Sing we're not alone
Sing we'll go back someday
Sing we will belong

Sing for us together
Sing we're not alone
Sing we'll go back someday
Sing we will belong

Sing out Ellis Island
Sing we're not alone
Sing we'll go back someday
Sing we will belong
Sing we will belong
