Sweet Kerry

Lyrics

Sweet Kerry, you know I love you
And the mountains up above you
The rivers and strems I played as a boy
Of the places so grand
In my native Ireland
Sure I love my County Kerry
And that’s where one day I’ll be

You may travell through Castleisland
Farronfore and The Gap of Dunlow
And look on to Killarney’s Lakes
From the hights of Aherdo
You may see Kate Karney’s Cottage
Or the clear Torc waterfall
As I move along the south coast
Through the town of Annascaul.

Sweet Kerry, you know I love you
And the mountains up above you
The rivers and strems I played as a boy
Of the places so grand
In my native Ireland
Sure I love my County Kerry
And that’s where one day I’ll be

It’s then you’ll view the Connor Pass
And dear old Dingle Town
The whistling of the sea gulls
As they fly up and down
Ballyheigh, Listowl and Causeway
Ardfert and Cahirciveen
And the place I know where I was born
Is my native town Tralee.

Sweet Kerry, you know I love you
And the mountains up above you
The rivers and strems I played as a boy
Of the places so grand
In my native Ireland
Sure I love my County Kerry
And that’s where one day I’ll be
