Lyrics

Oh, fare thee well to Ireland
My own dear native land
It's breaking my heart to see friends part
For it's then that the tears do fall
I'm on my way to Americae
Will I e'er see home once more
For now I leave my own true love
And Paddy's green shamrock shore

Our ship she lies at anchor
She's standing by the quay
May fortune bright shine down each night
As we sail across the sea
Many ships have been lost, many lives it cost
On this journey that lies before
With a tear in my eye I'll say goodbye
To Paddy's green shamrock shore

So fare thee well my own true love
I'll think of you night and day
And a place in my mind you surely will find
Although we'll be far, far away
Though I'll be alone far away from home
I'll think of the good times once more
Until the day I can make my way
Back home to the shamrock shore

And now our ship is on the way
May heaven protect us all
With the winds and the sail we surely can't fail
On this voyage to Baltimore
But my parents and friends did wave to the end
'Til I could see them no more
I then took a chance with one last glance
At Paddy's green shamrock shore

Here is another song called Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore.
