In our native town Liscarroll there dwells a colleen who was blind
And they called her Katie Farrell to her the neighbours all were kind
To see her knit beside her mother you never would think her sight was gone
And with Barney her young brother she milked the cows at early dawn

She’s the pride of Liscarroll this sweet Katie Farrell
With cheeks as red as roses and teeth as white as pearl
And the neighbours all pity that colleen so pretty
And oh how we all love that blind Irish girl

Well years ago when Kate were courting her young lover Ned Molloy
One night as they were both out walking with hearts like children full of joy
A storm arose and Kate got frightened she seized the arm of sweet heart Ned
And they both were struck by lightning they found her blind and he was dead

She’s the pride of Liscarroll this sweet Katie Farrell
With cheeks as red as roses and teeth as white as pearl
And the neighbours all pity this colleen so pretty
And oh how we all love that blind Irish girl
