My Lovely Rose Of Clare

Trad

Oh my lovely rose of Clare
You're the sweetest girl I know
You're the queen of all the roses
The pretty flowers that grow
You are the sunshine of my life
So beautiful and fair
And I will always love you
My lovely rose of Clare

The sun it shone out like a jewel
On the lovely hills of Clare
When I strolled along with my sweet lass
One evening at the fair
Her eyes they shone like silver streams
With her long long golden hair
And I won the heart of a young sweet lass
My lovely rose of Clare

Oh my lovely rose of Clare
You're the sweetest girl I know
You're the queen of all the roses
The pretty flowers that grow
You are the sunshine of my life
So beautiful and fair
And I will always love you
My lovely rose of Clare

As we walked down by the river bank
Watched the Shannon flowing by
And listened to the nightingale
Singing songs for you and I
And now to say goodbye
Farewell to all you true and fair
For I have stolen the heart of one
My lovely rose of Clare

Oh my lovely rose of Clare
You're the sweetest girl I know
You're the queen of all the roses
The pretty flowers that grow
You are the sunshine of my life
So beautiful and fair
And I will always love you
My lovely rose of Clare
