It’s long and many a year ago since I left my native land
It’s been no fault of mine that I left old Ireland
When mother and I parted some bitter tears were shed
Last night I dreamed of mother and in my dream she said.

Oh come back home to Erin come back to Erin’s shore
You know you’re always welcome and you’re Irish to the core
Come back home to Erin never again to roam
Come back to the one that loves you mo mhuirnín come back home.

I know I had a sweetheart along with mother dear
She promised when I left her to be faithful and sincere
I know she kept her promise for while I was away
Every letter that she’d write like mother she would say;

Oh come back hometo Erin come back to Erin’s shore
You know you’re always welcome and you’re Irish to the core
Come back home to Erin never again to roam
Come back to the one that loves you mo mhuirnín come back home.

Well now I must be goin it’s time I was away
When I reach old Ireland we’ll have a chat each day
It’s then I’ll marry Mary with Mary I will stay
In Ireland dear old Ireland and then no-one can say.

Oh come back home to Erin come back to Erin’s shore
You know you’re always welcome and you’re Irish to the core
Come back home to Erin never again to roam
Come back to the one that loves you mo mhuirnín come back home.
