Where the Shannon River meets the sea

Lyrics

Though my feet are planted in a far off land
There is somewhere they would rather be
Faith, ‘tis planted firmly in the dark brown sand
Where the Shannon River meets the sea
My heart is e’er returning to my darling
Whose blue eyes mean all the world to me
Heaven and someone placed an angel there
Where the Shannon River meets the sea

Though they told me other lands were fair
I’m afraid with them I can’t agree
For I long to breathe the scented air
Where the river meets the sea
There are no lips so sweet and so beguiling
As the lips I’m sure belong to me
Though I’m roaming, faith, my heart remains
Where the Shannon River meets the sea
