Sweet Youghal Bay

Lyrics

CHORUS
Sweet Youghal Bay, Sweet Youghal Bay
Beside your Blackwater, I’m longing to stray
Soon I’ll return, until that happy day
My heart’s in your keeping, oh sweet Youghal Bay

Where the River Blackwater flows into the sea
Fine old wooden bridge, it is my memory
That friendly old town, oh the place I love best
And the scene that I love there, oh sweet Youghal Bay
Chorus

From the top of Clay-castle, the lighthouse, I see
In it’s friendly old way, yet it’s winking at me
To the harbour, I stroll, I can see Monatray
In the fold of the hill there, oh sweet Youghal Bay
Chorus
