W:Sit you down, loyal comrade, sit you down for a while,
W:While I spend my last hours in Erin's green isle.
W:So fill up your glasses and we'll drink hand in hand,
W:For tomorrow I'll be leaving the shores of Lough Bran.
W:There's my father and mother you can now hear them cry,
W:With their tears bewailing, 'twould moisten your eye,
W:But I will assist them, please God, if I can,
W:While far away from lovely Erin and the shores of Lough Bran.
W:In the incoming morning I will bid you adieu,
W:To Leitrim, Drumshanbo and sweet Carrick too,
W:But no matter what fortune I shall meet far away,
W:My thoughts shall be with you by night and by day.
W:My thoughts shall be with you while life's course is spanned,
W:Far away from lovely Erin and the shores of Lough Bran.
