lyrics

A stór mo chroí, when you're far away

From the home that you'll soon be leaving

Sure it's many the time by night and by day

That your heart will be sorely grieving

For the stranger's land may be bright and fair

And rich in her treasures golden

You'll pine, I know, for the long, long ago

And the heart that is never olden

A stór mo chroí, in the stranger's land

There is plenty of wealth and wailing

Whilst gems adorn the great and grand

There are faces with hunger paling

Well the road is dreary, and hard to tread

And the lights of their cities blind you

Won't you turn a stór to Erin's shore

And the one that you left behind you

A stór mo chroí, when the evening's sun

Over mountain and meadow is a-falling

Won't you turn away from the throng and list

And maybe you'll hear me calling

For the sound of a voice that is surely mine

For somebody's speedy returning

A ruin, a ruin, won't you come back soon

To the one that will always love you
