VP_017205 Verse 1There's an Isle whose ancient glory, Is famed in song and story, And known by all wherever they may be; Where Fairies gaily sally, O'er mountain, stream and valley, To weave a charm of wond'rous mystery. And sure there the girls are pretty, The lads are brave and witty, Who Blarney in their own peculiar style, The country is the fairest It's history the rarest, And makes us love and honor Erin's Isle. Chorus 1Erin, Land of deeds and bravery, Your beauty's like the Emerald from nature's sunny smile, Erin, never born to slavery, And while we sing, let praises ring, for dear old Erin's Isle. dear old Erin's Isle. Verse 2In the past when foes oppressed her, Strong loving arms carressed her, Of heroes who were loyal to the core. And now if she were needing More lives to stop her bleeding, Her sons would die as martyrs did of yore. But her wrongs that still need righting Will call no more for fighting, For sure the time is coming all the while, When statesmen of the nation Will yet gain rank and station, And freedom win for dear old Erin's Isle.
