Lyrics

In the dawn a ship was anchored on a bright Saint Patrick's Day
On the quay a lass was sighing for her lover going away
In her hand she held an emblem and its parting eaves were three
And her parting words were darling look at these and think of me.

Three leaf shamrock I adore thee your three leaves I long to see
When there's brighter days in Ireland I'll come home and marry thee.

Just before the ship had started as she'd laid her land in mine
Just before that we had parted she looked on me with eyes so kind
To my coat she pinned an emblem and its parting eaves were three
And her parting words were darling look at these and think of me.

Three leaf shamrock I adore thee your three leaves I long to see
When there's brighter days in Ireland I'll come home and marry thee.

But tonight I am an exile far from home and far from thee
Next to my heart I’ll wear your token love no matter where I be
But although the seas divide us and your face I might never see
When there’s brighter days in Ireland I’ll come home and marry thee.

Three leaf shamrock I adore thee your three leaves I long to see
When there's brighter days in Ireland I'll come home and marry thee.
