Lyrics

I’m a true born Irish man and they called me Palace Dan
I was born and reared in Ireland you must know
And it’s soon I’m going back for to visit that old shack
That’s the cottage with the horseshoe o’er the door

I’m lighthearted young and free I’m as happy as can be
But many’s a time my heart it does feel sore
When I think of days I’ve seen round that little isle of green
That’s the cottage with the horseshoe o’er the door

Now my father he is dead and he lies beneath the soil
And my poor mother she’s left weeping there alone
May the holy angels shine round that happy cot of mine
That’s the cottage with the horseshoe o’er the door
