Lyrics

Now the autumn leaves are falling
And the tourists have all gone
And the children
They have all gone back to school
And my life is as it was before
I work eight hours a day
But the company's
Still making all the rules
But there's a girl in Massachusetts
South of Boston town, she said
And her lovely face
Is with me all the day
Sure I met her down in old Tralee
Golden hair upon her head
And I took her heart
And she stole mine away

Goodbye my Boston beauty
Farewell my Boston Rose
I'll wait for you, I'll think of you
No threat to you I'll pose
Goodbye my Boston beauty
Farewell my Boston Rose
I wish that you were here
But I know that's the way life goes

There's a song we sang all summer
In the bars of Dublin Town
I can hear it on
The factory radio
And the feelings I remember
When I hear that simple tune
Make me wonder
If it really happened so
For we laughed and loved together
'Til the summer days were gone
And she had to fly across
The ocean wide
So goodbye my Boston Beauty
Until we meet again
And I'll keep the fire
Burning deep inside

Goodbye my Boston beauty
Farewell my Boston Rose
I'll wait for you, I'll think of you
No threat to you I'll pose
Goodbye my Boston beauty
Farewell my Boston Rose
I wish that you were here
But I know that's the way life goes

And some nights when I'm drinking
And my friends have gathered round
Well, just for fun
Someone brings up your name
Well, I smile there with the rest of them
But I can't hear a sound
I love you
But to them it's all the same
And nights when I'm alone, my love
You come into my mind
And visions flash
Upon that inward eye
Well, I watch the moon there up above
Then I leave this earth behind
And I call to you
As I go sailing by

Goodbye my Boston beauty
Farewell my Boston Rose
I'll wait for you, I'll think of you
No threat to you I'll pose
Goodbye my Boston beauty
Farewell my Boston Rose
I wish that you were here
But I know that's the way life goes
I wish that you were here
So farewell my Boston Rose
