A Noreen ban when first we met
I can see the roses yet
And the light that lit your happy eyes of  blue
I can hear your sweet voice say
Welcome as the flowers of May
As it did when first I whispered back to you

Will you come with me a stoir
When the summer days are o’er
And the rooks are winging homeward in the sky
Where the mountains rise away
Over a field of gold and grey
We'll go home to Slaney Valley you and I

A Noreen ban when you said yes
Brim-full was my happiness
Summer sped as ne'er before on flying feet
Never shone the moon so bright
In a starry cape of night
Never sang the thrushes so divinely sweet

A Noreen ban for years you've been
In my heart its rightful queen
Ever loving ever tender ever true
On my heart your smile did shine
Gladdening all it glowed upon
As it did when first I whispered back to you

Will you come with me a stoir
When the summer days are o’er
And the rooks are winging homeward in the sky
Where the mountains rise away
Over a field of gold and grey
We'll go home to Slaney Valley you and I

We'll go home to Slaney Valley you and I
