My boat leaves the harbour tomorrow across that wide ocean to go
When Kitty my burden of sorrows ‘tis more than I’d wish you to know
There’s a dreary dark cloud hanging o’er me and a mighty big load on my mind
When I think on the prospects before me and the true love I’m leaving behind.

So farewell to the green hills of Eire
To my darling so faithful and kind
And wherever I may be I’ll be true love to thee
And the country I’m leaving behind.

Now Kitty give over your crying and don’t be uneasy for me
‘Tis only my fortune I’m trying in that sunny land over the sea
Should the dreary dark clouds gather round me and friendship grow or unkind
I know fine there is one heart that loves me in the country I’m leaving behind.

So farewell to the green hills of Eire
To my darling so faithful and kind
And wherever I may be I’ll be true love to thee
And the country I’m leaving behind.
