Eileen McManus

I'm looking for the text of this beautiful ballad. Can you help me, please.


Could it be this one?



Eileen McManus

One day as I strolled along Broadway
A vision came into my view
A vision of sadness and beauty
A beauty that's given to few
There I was in a land of the stranger
There she was I'd not seen her before
But somehow I knew she was Irish
Sweet Eileen from Erin's green shore

So softly a spell cast o'er me
As her lovely form moved on it's way
That I thought of the mother that bore her
And prayed she would love me for Aye
And as Eileen gazed sweetly upon me
Witht the charm of her grace evermore
I was a slave to sweet Eileen McManus
That fair colleen from Erin's green shore

I quickly approached this young maiden
I asked her the cause of her woe
And she said "I am crying for Erin
The land where the green shamrocks grow"
I said just make an end to your sorrow
Dear Eileen McManus asthore
For we'll marry and e'er it's tomorrow
I'll take you to Erin's green shore

We will travel the green hills and mountains
By the road to the gap of Dunloe
And along by the glens and the valleys
To a spot that is called Aghadoe
'Tis my joy just to see you contented
And your tears will be dried evermore
My own beautiful Eileen McManus
You'll be home on old Erin's green shore

Hi Pete,
many thanks for your help, it's that what I was searching.
