Once the musical - Abandoned In Bandon Lyrics

2012 Broadway
Once the Musical -
Abandoned In Bandon Lyrics


In County Cork in the country green,
In a lonesome town called Bandon,
A boy lives there and he dreams of County Clare
The holiday that he just had done.

Oh he walked over hills and skipped over rivers,
All the time his hand in his love.
But his love’s not here and never close at hand
His heart’s abandoned in Bandon.
Two counties. One love.
Too many complications
And not enough hand in glove.
Not enough hand in glove.

He took a dive outta town an’ kept on driving’,
His Western love – his navigation.
But the car broke down outside of Castletown,
He pulled into the gas station.

He dialed that name and imagined them kissin’,
As that sweet Clare voice filled his ears,
But his love’s not here and never close at hand.
His car’s all bust ‘cause he bust the gears.

Two counties. One love.
Too many complications
And not enough hand in glove.
Not enough hand in glove.
Abandoned in Bandon.
