The Kerry dancing

Lyrics

CHORUS
O the days of the Kerry dancing
O the days of the pipers tune
O for on of those hours of gladness
Gone alas like our youth too soon

When the boys began to gather in the glen of a summer night
And the Kerry pipers tuning, made us long with wild delight
O to think of it, O to dream of it, fills my heart with tears
Chorus

Was there ever a sweeter colleen in the dance than Eily Moore
Or a prouder lad than Thady as he boldly took the floor
Lads and lassies, to your places, up the middle and down again
And the merry hearted laughter ringing through the happy glen
Oh to think of it, Oh to dream of it fills my heart my tears.
Chorus
