Artist's Description

I’m bidding farewell to the land of my youth
and the home I love so well in Ireland,.
And the mountains so grand round my own native land,
I’m bidding them all farewell.
With an aching heart I’ll bid them adieu
for tomorrow I’ll sail far away from ya Ireland,,
O’er the raging foam for to seek a home
on the shores of Amerikay.

It’s not for the want of employment I’m going,
It’s not for the love of fame,
That fortune bright may shine over me
and give me a glorious name.
It’s not for the want of employment I’m going
o’er the weary and stormy sea,
But to seek a home for my own true love,
on the shores of Amerikay.

And when I am bidding my last farewell ta Ireland,
the tears like rain will blind,
To think of my friends in my own native land,
and the home I’m leaving behind sweet Ireland,.
But if I’m to die in a foreign land
and be buried so far far away
No fond mother’s tears will be shed o’er my grave
on the shores of Amerikay.
