VP_014167 Verse 1As I stood on the shore by the beautiful sea, And I gazed far away o'er the lee, I was thinking of Erin, that ever green Isle, And a cot that is dear unto me, I was thinking of mother, and sister and brother, As they stood in the door of our home, When they bid me goodbye with a tear in their eye, As I left for this wide world to roam. Chorus 1Like a rose from the garden, like a breeze from the sea, Are the lakes of Killarney, so dear unto me. Like the strains from a harp of a sweet melody, Erin, ah Erin, I'm longing for thee, Erin, ah Erin, I am longing for thee. Verse 2As I stood on the shore by the beautiful sea, And I gazed far away o'er the lee, I was thinking of Peggy a pretty colleen, And I know she was thinking of me, In visions I see her by the lakes of Killarney, And I hear her fond voice calling me, How I long to return to sweet Peg of my heart, And to Erin so dear unto me.
