Lyrics

On Eirne)"

Buachaill ón Éirne mé 's bhréagfainn féin cailín deas óg.

Ní iarrfainn bó spré léithe tá mé féin saibhir go leor.

'S liom Corcaigh 'a mhéid é, dhá thaobh a' ghleanna 's Tír Eoghain.

'S mura n-athraí mé béasaí 's mé n' t-oidhr' ar Chontae Mhaigh Eo
\


Rachaidh mé 'márach a dhéanamh leanna fán choill

Gan choite, gan bád, gan gráinnín brach' ar bith liom

Ach duilliúr na gcraobh mar éideadh leapa os mo chionn

'S óró sheacht mh'anam déag thú 's tú 'féachaint orm anall.

Buachailleacht bó, mo lao, nár chleacht mise ariamh

Ach ag imirt 's ag 'ol 's le hógmhná deasa fá shliabh

Má chaill mé mo stór ní dóigh* gur chaill mé mo chiall

A's ní mó liom do phóg ná'n bhróg atá'r caitheamh le bliain.

Come by the hills to the land where fancy is free.
And stand where the peaks meet the sky and the loughs meet the sea,
Where the rivers run clear and the bracken is gold in the sun;
And the cares of tomorrow can wait till this day is done.

I am a boy from Ireland and I'd coax a nice young girl,
I wouldn't ask for a dowry with her, I'm rich enough myself,
I own Cork, big as it is both sides of the glen and Tyrone,
And if I don't change my ways I'll be the heir for County Mayo.)

Come by the hills to the land where fancy is free.
And stand where the peaks meet the sky and the loughs meet the sea,
Where the rivers run clear and the bracken is gold in the sun;
And the cares of tomorrow can wait till this day is done.
