I have searched in the D-base for the lyrics to "Blue hills of Breffni". Couldn't find it. Please help me, I love that song.

Found a clip at Fye Music Product which was sung by Daniel O'Donnell. Here is what I have been able to make out of the song:

Old thatched cottage standing by the street
Winter nights of story and of songs
And the sound of the fiddle that my father used to play
And the music echoed as we sang along
 
Neighbours would gather 'round the old turf fire
And they talked about the heroes

Typical Daniel O'Donnell.........

Blue Hills of Breffni shining in the sun
Scenes that I knew so long ago
When in my boyhood barefoot I would run
Through the fields and the woodlands I would go

Down by the river there's a old swinging pole
Where we laughed and played the summer days away
And home in the evening with the sun sinking low
In the Blue Hills of Breffni far away

Chorus
Far away, far away
Blue Hills of Breffni far away
Old memories burning, soon I'll be returning
To my Blue Hills of Breffni far away

Old thatched cottage standing by the stream
Winter nights of story and of song
And the sound of the fiddle that my father used to play
And the music echoed as we sang along

Neighbours would gather round the old turf fire
They talked about the heroes of the day
Life was all for living in the days when we were young
In Blue Hills of Breffni far away

chorus

I had a sweetheart she was young and fair
She cared not that I had no wealth or fame
We'd go walking hand in hand along the leafy lane
To the old oak tree where once I carved her name

There we made our promises that we would never part
And our love would last for ever and a day
But I went aroving and left my love behind
In Blue Hills of Breffni far away

chorus
