Man of the North countrie

Lyrics

He came from the North and his words were few
But his voice was kind and his heart was true
And I knew by his eyes, no guile had he
So I married the man of the North Countrie

Oh, Garryowen maybe more gay
Than this quiet street of Ballibay
And I know the sunshines softly down
On the river that passes my native town

But there’s not, I say it with joy and pride
Better no man than mine in Munster-wide
And Limerick town has no happier heart
Than mine has been with my man of the North

I wish that in Munster they only knew
The kind, kind neighbours I came unto
Small hate or scorn would ever be
Between the South and the North Countrie
