Down by the Lagan Side
Tommy Sands - © Elm Grove Music
I sang this song for the first time to celebrate the new diversity and the opening of the Belfast’s Waterfront Hall on the banks of the Lagan. On stage was Janet Harbison’s Belfast Harp Orchestra, The Field Marshall Montgomery Pipe Band and Vedran Smailovic from Sarajevo. During the week of the Good Friday Agreement we sang it many times and many times later. When we dance we’ll dance together.
Well, I thought she was a vision that stopped me with her smile
I said: who owns that music, so full of joy and pain
And do you not remember, we once walked side by side
