VP_011064 Verse 1In a place far away, on a sweet night in May, When together we stood side by side, 'Neath the fair golden moon, with the world all in tune, As you Chorus 1Eileen, my Eileen, from old Killarney, I'll always love you, my sweet colleen! When night is falling, my heart is calling, Calling for you, sweet Eileen, my Eileen. promised that you'd be my bride. Ah! the love in your eyes, like the soft summer skies, As I whispered to you sweet colleen; With a love that is true, I'll be waiting for you, Then I'd kiss you once more sweet Eileen. Verse 2Many years passed away, since that sweet night in May, And to me you were always the same, Like the suns brightest ray, just to light up my way, For the Chorus 2Eileen, my Eileen, from old Killarney, I'll always love you, my sweet colleen! When night is falling, my heart is calling, Calling for you, sweet Eileen, my Eileen. love in your heart still remains, All alone now I roam, in the place we called home, How I miss your blue eyes, sweet colleen; And your bright sunny smile that made life worth the while, When I called you my own sweet Eileen.
