You hear of all the stories,
the tears that have been shed,
By those who left dear Ireland
to keep their families fed;
Well this crowd's never been there
but if you listen close,
You'd swear their blood's
green as the grass
That lies on Ireland's coast;
That lies on Ireland's coast.

With Milton on the bodhran
and Colin's mandolin,
Mike strumming on the six string
and Della joining in;
Bill's whistle piping clearly,
through the winter chill,
We'll see the break of morning
with the crowd from up the hill,
And I hope we always will.

With a yarn that takes you back in time,
Bill will have you sold,
On the virtues of his heritage,
that flag green, white and gold;
And as the evening carries on
get set for what's in store,
'Cause with the last word of one song
in the corner starts one more,
In that corner starts one more.

With Milton on the bodhran
and Colin's mandolin,
Mike strumming on the six string
and Della joining in;
Bill's whistle piping clearly,
through the winter chill,
We'll see the break of morning
with the crowd from up the hill,
And I hope we always will.

No matter if you're here or there
along the rocky shore,
Or if you've been to Ireland
and walked around the moor;
One thing is for certain,
perhaps it always will,
Every nook and cranny,
and every pond and cove,
Every town and valley has
a crowd from up the hill,
And I hope they always will.

Like Milton on the bodhran
and Colin's mandolin,
Mike strumming on the six string
and Della joining in;
Bill's whistle piping clearly,
through the winter chill,
We'll see the break of morning
with the crowd from up the hill.

With Milton on the bodhran
and Colin's mandolin,
Mike strumming on the six string
and Della joining in;
Bill's whistle piping clearly,
through the winter chill,
We'll see the break of morning
with the crowd from up the hill,
And I hope we always will.
I pray we always will;
I know we always will,
have a crowd from up the hill!
