Lakes of Sligo

Lyrics

Fair Sligo thee I now must leave
To part thy beauty I do grieve
But not forever, I believe
I’ll call again to Sligo

CHORUS
To Holy Well, I bid adieu
To Hazelwood and Cairns too
And Toberknock, that splendid view
Which adorns the lakes of Sligo

And fair Lough Gill with its isle so grand
Where we often wandered hand in hand
On a summer’s evening by the strand
Along the lakes of Sligo
Chorus

And on that lake we often spent
Many an hour and quite content
And from our boat sweet music went
Around the lakes of Sligo
Chorus

Fair Sligo thee, I now must leave
To part thy beauty I do grieve
But not forever, I believe
I’ll call again to Sligo
Chorus
