An Irish Lullaby

Lyrics

Over in Killarney
Many years ago
My mother sang a song to me
In tones so sweet and low
Just a simple ditty
In her good old Irish way
l’d give the world if she could sing
That song to me to day

CHORUS
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, hush now, don’t you cry
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, that’s an Irish lullaby

Oft in dreams I wander
To that cot again
I feel her arms a-hugging me
As when she held me then
I hear her voice a-humming
As in days of yore
When she would rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door
Chorus
