I could see this one entering the tradition easily. Composed & sung by a great Cork artist John Spillane. Written by John for his little daughter when she was small.

All the Ways You Wander

“All the ways you wander, all the ways you roam
All across great oceans, all across the foam
Through the faraway houses, through the sunsets on fire
Searching for the island of your heart’s desire

Where the sun is always shining and the oranges grow on the trees
You only have to wait two seconds there for every thing you please
In a garden of daisies, in a circle of light
Searching for the island of your heart’s delight

I’ll wait for you, like a true friend
I’ll wait for you, till the very end

And if you take the long way, if you take the long way home
Down where the magicians and the dreamers roam
Through the mountains of morning, through the valleys of night
Searching for the island of your hearts delight

I’ll wait for you, like a true friend
I’ll wait for you, till the very end

All the ways you wander, all the ways you roam
All across great oceans, all across the foam
Through the faraway houses, through the sunsets on fire
Searching for the island of your heart’s desire.”
