The Flower of Magherally One pleasant Summer's morning, when flowers were a blooming-oh Nature was adorning, and the small birds sweetly tuning-oh I met my love near to Banbridge town, my charming blue-eyed Sally-oh She is the queen of the county Down, the Flower of Magherally-oh With admiration I did gaze all on that fair haired maiden-oh Adam ne'er so much was pleased when he first saw Eve in Eden-oh Her skin was like the lily white, that grows in yonder valley oh And I think I'm blessed when I am nigh the Flower of Magherally-oh Her golden hair in ringlets fell, her boots were Spanish leather-oh Her bonnet with two ribbons on, her scarlet cap and feather-oh Like Venus bright she did appear, my charming blue-eyed Sally-oh She is the one that I love dear, the Flower of Magherally-oh And I know the day will surely come when we'll join hands together-oh And I'll bring home my darling girl in spite of wind and weather-oh For let them all say what they will, let them rail and rally oh I will wed the girl I love - the flower of Magherally-oh.
