My own sweet bright Owvaun

Lyrics

Along thy banks fair river
It’s my delight to stray
And watch thy happy wavelets
That seem so full of play
Whilst bubbling ever onward
By grassy mead and lawn
To join the lordly Shannon
My own sweet bright Owvaun

By Ballyhahill gliding
Lisready green and fair,
It seems to be as loath to leave
Thy spots of beauty there
By Curraghmore and Woodcliff
Past glen and cliff and lawn
Unrivalled is thy beauty
My sparkling bright Owvaun
