Janet Dowd: Music

Neidin

It is the popular belief that the song Neidin is about a girl (not Nadine Coyle as our bass player Pete thought) but in fact it is about a place in Co.Kerry called Kenmare - Neidin being the Irish for Kenmare. If you've never been, take a race over sometime as it is truly beautiful.

NEIDIN

 

As I leave behind Neidin, it’s like purple splashed on green

My soul is strangely fed, through the winding hills ahead

And she plays a melody, on winds and streams for me

Won’t you remember, won’t you remember

Won’t you remember me

 

And we wind and climb and fall, like the greatest waltz of all

Float across the floor, her sweet breath outside the door

And it’s time that I was gone, ‘cross the silver tear

Won’t you remember, won’t you remember

Won’t you remember me

 

As I leave behind Neidin, in the hall where we have been

Rhododendrons in her hair, in the mountain scented air

I still feel her spirit song, across the silver tear

Won’t you remember, won’t you remember

Won’t you remember me

Won’t you remember, won’t you remember

Won’t you remember me
