At the early age of thirty-eight me mother said "Go west!" "Get up", says she, "and get a job", says I, "I'll do my best" I pulled on me Wellingtons to march to Kiltimagh But I took a wrong turn in Charlestown and ended up in Knock Oh once this quiet crossroads was a place of gentle prayer Where Catholics got indulgent once or twice a year. You could buy a pair of rosary beads or get your candles blessed If you had a guilty conscience you could get it off your chest. Then came the priest from Partry, Father Horan was his name And since he's been appointed Knock has never been the same. "B'God" says Jem, "'tis eighty years since Mary was about" 'Tis time for another miracle." and he blew the candle out. From Fatima to Bethlehem, from Lourdes to Kiltimagh, There's never been a miracle like the airport up in Knock To establish terra firma he drew up a ten year plan And started running dances around 1961. He built a fantabulous church, Go h-álainn, on the holy ground And once he had a focal point he started to expand Chip shops and Bed and Breakfasts sprung up over night. Once a place for quiet retreats now a holy sight. All sorts of fancy restaurants for every race and creed Where black and white and yellow pilgrims all could get a feed The stalls once under canvas became religious supermarts
