Flower of Kilkenny

Lyrics

I once loved a flower in Kilkenny
A beautiful creature was she
I loved her far better than any
And I know that young darling loved me

CHORUS
She’s the beautiful Flower of Kilkenny
Shall I gaze on her fair face no more ?
I’ve roamed through the world and seen many
But there’s none like my Eileen, a Stór
No, there’s none like my Eileen, a Stór

I remember the first time I met her
I gazed at the hand I’d pursue
No man could have felt any better
When she swore she would always be true
Chorus

As she left me, she gave me a token
And that was an outburst of tears
The words that were so gently spoken
Have remain in my memory for years
Chorus
