Here's my transcription from the recording heard at Spotify:

SOFTLY FLOWS THE CLARE
As sung by Fergus O'Kelly on "Sweet Sounds of Ireland" (2010)

The willow bends her lovely head, hiding bitter tears
That are shed by someone waiting there.
She waits alone for my return 'cause I am far away
From the land where softly flows the Clare.

The willow was our meeting place in those happy days
When our hearts were young and free from care,
But foolishly I said goodbye and wandered far away
From that land where softly flows the Clare.

Alone she waits for my return, but she will wait in vain,
For I'm a stranger in a lonely land when shall I see her again.

There'll come the day I'll find my way home across the sea,
And she'll still be waiting for me there.
Yes, I'll go home to claim my love 'neath the willow tree
In the land where softly flows the Clare.

REPEAT LAST VERSE.
