Connemara Marble Ring

Lyrics

Fifty years today her family sent her away
When a boy from Connemara won her heart
Before she left he gave her a ring
The most beautiful one she’d ever seen
To remind her of his love when they were apart

She left for England alone, he went back to his Galway home
It was the last time that they ever kissed goodbye
Never again would he hold her near
With all of her heart she loved him dear
One last promise she made him as she cried

Chorus
My Connemara Marble Ring every where with me I’ll bring
As every one its praises I will sing
On my finger it will stay forever until my dying day
how I love my Connemara Marble Ring

The years quickly passed her by
Sometimes tears would fill her eyes
When she told me of the promise she had made
Now I can wear the ring with pride
I know grandma never lied
Until today upon her finger it had stayed

Chorus
My Connemara Marble Ring every where with me I’ll bring
As every one its praises I will sing.
On my finger it will stay forever until my dying day
How I love my Connemara Marble Ring
How I love my Connemara Marble Ring
