I've just googled that line and it seems the song which it comes from is called 'Belfast', it also appears to be a loyalist anthem according to the site where I found it :

http://www.geocities.com/wrangholmdefenders/loyalson.html

BELFAST.
OF ALL THE PLACES I HAVE BEEN THERE IS ONE WHO HOLDS MY DREAM IT'S A PLACE THAT LINGERS IN MY MIND IT'S A PLACE THAT I,VE LEFT BEHIND

I,VE BEEN AWAY NOW FOR TOO MANY YEARS,I,VE READ ALL THE PAPERS THAT TELLS OF YOUR FEARS THOUGH I,VE LEFT YOU WITH A HEART THATS BEEN TORN I,M GOING HOME TO THE PLACE I WAS BORN

THATS BELFAST,YOU CALL TO ME WHEN I AM FAR AWAY I THINK OF THEE YOUR BLACK MOUNTAINS,CAVHILL,CITYHALL,SHAWSBRIDGE,RIVER LAGGAN,I,M GOING HOME TO THEM ALL,

I,VE FRIENDS AND RELATIONS EACH ONE I,LL EMBRACE WE,LL PASS ROUND THE PICTURES WHICH TIME CAN,T ERASE BUT IT WON,T BE LONG NOW TILL I SEE THEM ALL WE,LL WALK ROUND THE OLD STREETS AND GOOD TIMES I RECALL

YES THATS BELFAST YOU CALL TO ME WHEN I AM FAR AWAY I THINK OF THEE YOUR BLACK MOUNTAINS,CAVEHILL CITY HALL SHAWS BRIDGE RIVER LAGGAN I,M GOING HOME TO THEM ALL.


Sorry about the caps but that's how it printed after I copied and pasted it.
