the heart of kathleen

the heart of kathleen

 

oh my love be humble
be humble and true
don’t fade away like the morning dew
i’ve heard of a free land
fare across the sea
and i’m seeking a new live
on the still distance shore

 

fare thee well to my people
fare thee well for a while
to the rivers and the meadows
where we have been
the high rocky slops
and the heart of kathleen
the high rocky slops
and the heart of kathleen

 

some day i will take you
take you to me kathleen
where the fields are fresh
oh so fresh and green
some day i will take you
take you to me kathleen
where the brightest rays
of sunshine gleem

 

your beauty will hount me
where ever i go
i will not forget you
in the land i’m going to

 

in the night we will dance
by the light of the moon
and i promisse you
oh that will be soon

 

some day i will take you
take you to me kathleen
and we laugh down by
by the silver stream
some day i will take you
take you to me kathleen
and the light bless the trees
forever with green

 

and the bells will be ringing
and i will run to you
with arms spread out wide
with arms spread out wide

 

fare thee well to my people
fare thee well for a while
to the rivers and the meadows
where we have been
the high rocky slops
and the heart of kathleen
the high rock slops
and the heart of kathleen
