Bobby O'Brien Lyr Req/Add: Three-Leaf Shamrock^^^ (5) Lyr Add: THREE-LEAF SHAMROCK 21 Mar 97

1. 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."

CHORUS: Three-leaf shamrock, I adore thee.
Your three leaves I long to see.
When there's brighter days in Ireland,
I'll come home and marry thee.

2. Just before the ship had started, as she 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.
