Beautful City of Sligo

Lyrics

We may tramp the earth for all that we’re worth
But what odds where you and I go ?
We shall never meet a spot so sweet
As the beautful City of Sligo

Chorus
Oh, sure she’s a Queen in purple and green
As she shimmers and glimmers her gardens between
And away to Lough Lene, the like isn’t seen
Of her river, a quiver with shadow and sheen
The beautiful City of Sligo

Tho’ bustle and noise and some folks’ joys
Your London just gives me vertigo
You can hear yourself talk when out you walk
Thro’ the beautiful City of Sligo
Chorus

As an artist in stones, a genius was Jones
Whom so querrly they christened Inigo
But he hadn’t the skill to carve a Grass Hill
For the beautiful City of Sligo
Chorus
