Limerick, you’re a lady

Lyrics

Limerick, you’re a lady
Your Shannon water’s tears of joy have flown
The beauty that surrounds you
I take it with me love where e’er I go
While waking in the arms of distant waters
A new day finds me far away from home
Then Limerick you’re a lady
The one true love that I have ever known

As children, you and I spend endless days of fun
In winter snows and summer’s golden sun
We fished in silver streams, the fabric of my dreams
Was fashioned by your loveliness, and so I had to say

Limerick, you’re a lady
Your Shannon water’s tears of joy have flown
The beauty that surrounds you
I take it with me love where e’er I go
While waking in the arms of distant waters
A new day finds me far away from home
Then Limerick you’re a lady
The one true love that I have ever known

A gift that time has made to travellers on their way
Seeking out the beauty of our land
A shrine where children pray, and bells ring out to say
Thank God we’re living just for you, the freedom of each day

Limerick, you’re a lady
Your Shannon water’s tears of joy have flown
The beauty that surrounds you
I take it with me love where e’er I go
While waking in the arms of distant waters
A new day finds me far away from home
Then Limerick you’re a lady
The one true love that I have ever known
