There is a town in IrelandA
A little town I knowB
Its girls have tender Irish eyesC
Beneath their brows of snowB
And in the field around itD
The Fairy Hawthorns growB
-
O the Hawthorn is a QueenE
And the daughter of a KingF
And amidst her branches greenE
The sweet brown thrushes singF
-
And from that little cityG
Three roads forever runH
And on those roads the peopleI
The father and the sonH
The mother and the daughterJ
Walk till the day is doneH
-
O the Hawthorn is a QueenE
And the daughter of a KingF
And amidst her branches greenE
The thrushes sadly singF
-
One road runs to the seaportK
Where stately vessels lieL
American AustralianH
The weeping exiles cryL
Farewell to Grave and HearthstoneH
Dear Ireland good byeL
-
O the Hawthorn is a QueenH
And the daughter of a KingF
And amidst her branches greenH
'Farewell ' the thrushes singF
-
One road it is a red red roadM
That road to England goesN
The battle drums are soundingF
The trump of battle blowsN
And Ireland's sons go forth to fightO
Against Red England's foesN
-
O the Hawthorn is a QueenH
And the daughter of a KingF
And within her heart of greenH
The mournful thrushes singF
-
One road it is a quiet roadM
They travel it full slowB
Their eyes are filled with sorrowB
The silent folk who goB
To where the Stones of SilenceP
Are shining row on rowB
-
O the Hawthorn is a QueenH
And a Lady fair and grandQ
And the thrushes sing the keenH
Of the Dead in IrelandA
