Connemara By The Lake


I still recall that day in July
When you said to me your last goodbye
And that same night you sailed away
To distant lands across the sea

In Connemara by the lake
Two young lovers hearts did break
In County Galway by the sea
There I loved you and you loved me

For seven long years I had to wait
And now you’ve come, alas, too late
For I was told that you were dead
And yesterday at noon I was wed

The western breezes whisper true
They bring back memories of you
Of summer days I cannot forget
In Connemara where we met
