Lyrics

There's a pretty spot in Ireland I’ll always claim for my land
Where the fairies and the blarney will never ever die
It's a land of the shillelagh and my heart goes back there daily
To the girl I left behind me when we kissed and said goodbye.

Where the River Shannon's flowing the three-leaved shamrock grows
Where my heart is I am going to my little Irish rose
And the moment that I’ll meet her with a hug and kiss I'll greet her
For there's not a colleen sweeter where the River Shannon flows.

No letters I'll be mailing for soon will I be sailing
And I'll bless the ship that brings me to my dear old Erin's shore
There I'll settle down forever I'll leave the old sod never
And I'll whisper to my sweetheart come and take my name a stóir.

Where the River Shannon's flowing the three-leaved shamrock grows
Where my heart is I am going to my little Irish rose
And the moment that I’ll meet her with a hug and kiss I'll greet her
For there's not a colleen sweeter where the River Shannon flows.
