  1. A Song

    It is years ago, dear Erin

    It is years ago, dear Erin
    since I took a fond adieu
    Your valleys green and mountains fair
    and ships of azure blue
    Many a loss and many a cross
    I had to undergo
    Since first I saw old Nephin hill
    on the plains of sweet Mayo.
    Well I can remember the grove of Carrowkeel
    And all around old Nephin hill
    from Thristia to the Deel
    It is now I think and often
    wonder if there be
    One dear old friend among the rest
    that would still remember me.
