Slaney Valley

Lyrics

Astóreen Bawn, when first we met
I can see the roses yet
And the love-light in your happy eyes of blue
I can hear your sweet voice say
Welcome as the flowers in May
As it did when first I whispered back to you

Chorus
Will you come with me astóre
When the summer days are o’er
And the rooks are winging homeward in the sky
Where the mountains fade away
On a field of gold and gray
We’ll go home to Slaney Valley, you and I

Astóreen Bawn when you said yes
Brimful was my happiness
And the summer sped as if on flying feet
Never shown the moon so bright
In a cape of starry light
Never sang the thrushes so divinely sweet
Chorus

Astóreen Bawn, for years you’ve been
Of my heart, it’s earthly King
Ever tender, ever loving, ever true
But your smile from Earth has gone
Gladdening all it glowed upon
As it did when first I whispered back to you
Chorus
