Lyrics

Here’s a health to dear old Ireland the green gem of the west
Here’s a health to dear old Ireland the land St. Patrick blessed
When I think on dear old Ireland my heart does overflow
When I think all of those happy days one hundred years ago.

No more the old man’s whip will crack along the country road
No more the old mail coach will stop for to get down her load
The old mail coach she is broke down she’s travelled rather slow
But she travelled hard enough for us one hundred years ago.

Here’s to dear old Ireland when we had honest men
Here’s to dear old Ireland will them times come again
But if bad landlords were put down plenty on us might flow
And we might have the times we had one hundred years ago.
