Three Leaf Shamrock In the dark, a ship was anchored On a bright St Patrick's Day On the quay a lass was sighing For her lover going away In her hand she held an emblem And its small green leaves were three And her parting words were "darling, Look at this and think of me" cho: Three leaf shamrock I adore thee You three leaves I long to see When there's brighter days in Ireland I'll come home and marry thee. Just before the ship had started As she'd laid her land on mine Just before that we had parted She looked with loving eyes so kind. But tonight I am an exile Far from home, and far from thee When there's brighter days in Ireland I'll go home and marry thee. (repeat chorus) BO'B OCT98
