“Coney Island” by Van Morrison

Experienced to the hilt by Van’s fans on November 23, 2014, in our caravan through County Down

Hear Van sing it for us

Coney Island 

Coming back from Downpatrick

Downpatrick Cathedral

Stopping off at St. John’s Point

Out all day birdwatching                                                                      

And the craic was good

Stopped off at Strangford Lough
Early in the morning

Drove through Shrigley taking pictures

And on to Killyleagh

Stopping off for Sunday papers at the
Lecale District, just before Coney Island

On and on, over the hill to Ardglass                                                  

In the jamjar, autumn sunshine, magnificent
And all shining through

Stopped off at Ardglass for a couple of jars of
Mussels and some potted herrings in case
We get famished before dinner

On and on, over the hill and the craic is good
Heading towards Coney Island

I look at the side of your face as the sunlight comes
Streaming through the window in the autumn sunshine

And all the time going to Coney Island I’m thinking,
Wouldn’t it be great if it was like this all the time.
