LONG BEFORE YOUR TIME (Johnny McEvoy) Johnny McEvoy - 1976 Also recorded by: Foster & Allen; Brendan Grace; Noel Flynn; Masterless Men. You ask me why I look so sad on this bright summer day Or why the tears are in my eyes and I seem so far away Well sit yourself beside me, love, and put your hand in mine And I'll tell you of someone I loved long, long before your time I'm sitting here and thinking of those days so long ago When I was just a child like you and the girl I used to know Through fields of green we laughed and played and sang our merry rhymes Oh, summer days were warmer then, long, long before your time Through childhood years our love did bloom, till our hearts were just as one And we promised each eternal love in the church below the town We settled in this little house, I was proud to call her mine Oh, we were young and happy then, long, long before your time One lovely year was all we had until the sickness came That stole the roses from her cheeks, my tears they fell like rain For nine long months she carried you, but in the end she died She chose to go so you might live, long, long before your time So you ask me why I look so sad on this bright summer day Or why the tears are in my eyes and I seem so far away Its just you seem a lot like her when your eyes look into mine And you smile so much like she did, long, long before your time And you smile so much like she did, long, long before your time (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
