This song will trigger emotions for fathers everywhere.  It was composed from real letters sent over decades in the nineteenth century by an Irish father to his son who had emigrated to America.  Going to America in the days of the potato famine was like going to the moon except that the emigrees were not expected to return. Some families even held a wake for the departed since they would never see them again.  Listen up.
