Beautiful Erin

Lyrics

So far far away from my darling Tipperary
A thousand broad leaves of Atlantic between
In spirit I visit though cheery or weary
My Motherland Erin, the oceans own Queen
My motherland Erin, the oceans own Queen

Chorus
Beautiful Erin, childhood sweet-home
How fondly I love thee where ever I roam
Suir’s lovely valleys clothed in green
The brighest in Erin, the oceans own Queen
The brighest in Erin, the oceans own Queen

And soon shall my country again be a nation
Her sons will return from the lands far away
May the fore-front of freedom again be their station
And may we all see that glorious day
And may we all see that glorious day
Chorus

Though rivers run deeper and mountains are taller
Vessels go sailing from here to afar
Far dearer to me is the Suir though it’s smaller
Far dearer the Commeraghs and sweet Slievenamon
Far dearer the Commeraghs and sweet Slievenamon.
