Hear his name […] and he was born
It’s true I loved him dearly but alas from he is gone
He’s gone out to America he promised he’d send for me
But the face of my bonny Irish boy no longer can be seen.

I paid my passage to New York in honour […]
To seek and find my Irish boy I quickly did prepare
I searched New York and Florida and Austin all in vain
But the face of my bonny Irish boy no longer can be seen.

Early the next morning a note came to my door
I knew the voice I knew it was the boy I do adore
I hurried on to let him in I never felt such joy
When I fell into my arms of my bonny Irish boy.

It’s now that we’ve got married no more he’ll go to sea
It’s true I loved him dearly I’m sure that he loves me
Its now our fast young son was born to my dear life and joy
He’s a picture of his daddy and a bonny […] boy.
