“Streets of Arklow” is a song by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. It appears on the album Veedon Fleece, released in 1974. The song describes a perfect day in “God’s green land” and is a tribute to the Wicklow town of Arklow visited during the singer’s 1973 vacation trip back to Ireland after being in the United States since 1967. The song has also been played regularly in concert since 2002 by Morrison. From 2003 to 2009 it was played in a medley with “You Don’t Pull No Punches, But You Don’t Push the River”. Read on...
