Lyrics

My name is O’Haran
And I’m here from Kildare
This morning I woke with the memory of those who live there

All of my loved ones
And the girl in my heart
Her eyes were as blue as the ocean that drew us apart

Like a fool I was captured
When stories where told
And we dreamed of a land where the rivers were running with gold
Rivers of gold

We sailed on the Dunbar
And we waved to the shore
And as they disappeared
I feared I would see them no more

And we crowded together
And we braved the unknown
And the waves were like mountains
We were desperate and drenched to the bone

And we watched the horizon
And the wind was so cold
And we dreamed of a land where the rivers were running with gold
Rivers of gold

Through the eye of a needle
The poor will pass through
Well I settled for all I could get
It was all I could do

For the chance of a lifetime
I was so young and bold
Set of into the wild blue yonder
For rivers of gold

Like a fool I was captured
When stories were told
Of a land where the rivers were running with gold
Yeh we dreaming of a land where the rivers were running with gold

Oh I dreamed of a land where the rivers were running with gold
