Subject: Lyr Add: WELCOME PADDY HOME ^^
Welcome Paddy home is an old favorite of mine too! :-) Good Luck!

I am a true born Irish man,
I'll never deny what I am...
I was born in the sweet Tipperary, boys,
Three thousand miles from this land...

Hooray me boys hooray,
No more do I wish for to roam,
For the sun it will shine in the harvest time,
To welcome Paddy home

Now the Scotsman may boast of the thistle,
The English may boast of the rose,
Ah, but Paddy can boast of the Emerald Isle,
here the dear little shamrock grows

In came the unwelcome stranger,
And settled all over the land,
The horse and the plough, the ox and the sow,
Fell into the stranger's hands

Now the girls they're young and they're frisky,
They'll take you by the hand,
Saying 'Jimmy Mchree, won't ye come with me,
And welcome Paddy home
