YOU SELDOM COME TO SEE ME ANYMORE (Johnny McEvoy) Also recorded by: Ken Mullan; Don Wardlow; Susan McCann; Hugo Duncan; Shamrock Singers; Paddy O'Brien; The Wicklows. What's your hurry, can't you stay and pass an hour away And we'll sit and dream awhile by candlelight For when the long day's over, that's the time I fear the most When I hear your footsteps fade into the night You're restless, tell me why there's a teardrop in your eye And I've seen it there a hundred times before And I know you're going to leave me and it always breaks my heart For you seldom come to see me any more I well recall that day when my ship it sailed away To a far off distant land across the sea Where a cruel war was raging, where time was standing still And blind hatred was the order of the day You're restless, tell me why there's a teardrop in your eye And I've seen it there a hundred times before And I know you're going to leave me and it always breaks my heart For you seldom come to see me any more I know it can't be fair for a soldier's wife to hear How he helped to keep his country proud and free And no brass nor fancy ribbons can ever ease the pain When he comes back half the man he used to be You're restless, tell me why there's a teardrop in your eye And I've seen it there a hundred times before And I know you're going to leave me and it always breaks my heart For you seldom come to see me any more You seldom come to see me any more (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
