Lyrics Noreen Bawn

There's a spot in old Tír Chonaill
There's a wee house in the glen
Where lived an Irish cailín
Who charmed hearts of men
She was handsome hale and hearty
Shy and graceful as the faun
Neighbours loved that widow's daughter
Happy, laughing, Noreen Bawn
'Till one day there came a letter
With her passage paid to go
To the land where the Missouri
And the Mississippi flows
So she said farewell to Eireann
And next morning at the dawn
A poor broken-hearted mother
Said farewell to Noreen Bawn
Many years, that mother waited
'Till one morning at her door
Stood a gorgeous-looking lady
Very grand the clothes she wore
Saying "Mother
Don't you know me?
Sure, I've only caught a cold"
But the purple spots upon her cheeks
The tragic story told
There's a graveyard in Tír Chonaill
Where the blossoms sadly wave
There's a broken-hearted mother
Kneeling on a lonely grave
For Noreen, she is calling
It's long years since you've been gone
It was the curse of emigration
That laid you low
My Noreen Bawn
