I No More Will Be Passing This Way
(Irish Descendants)

My journey's done, I'm going away,
My song is sung, I must leave today;
The home I love, from it I will stray,
And I no more will be passing this way.

Now life's been fair for this here man,
Blessed with a family all so grand;
It grieves my heart to end my stay,
But I no more will be passing this way.

When we were young, and days were warm,
I held you fondly in my arms;
In fields of green we'd walk on the lane,
But I no more will be passing this way.

When evening came the moon shone bright,
Your locks of hair lit up the night;
I guess all things must fade away,
'Cause I no more will be passing this way.

Before too long we'll meet again,
But as I wait my love I send;
And as I lie here on the grave,
I no more will be passing this way.

And someday soon, I hope and pray,
We'll be as one when you're passing this way.
