Transatlantic Cable 2 – Emigrants’ Song

Dear Dad,
There’s just so much I have to tell you,
Just so much that I have seen…
…Dear Sis,
I hope you’re keeping well,
I’m keeping fit and fed and clean…
…My darling Anne,
Oh how I miss you still,
I hope your married life is good…
…My best mate Dan,
And all the lads a’t’mill,
Is there someone else where I once stood ?…
…Dear Mum…
…Mijn lieve Klara…
…Bonne-maman…
….A Seán, a chara…
…Take these words, they’re all we got,
They’ll cross the sea as we cannot…
…Cari saluti…
…Bester grus…
…Todo mi amor…
…Mit einem Kuss…
