Subject: Lyr Req: I'M PROUD I'M AN IRISHMAN'S SON

From Irish Come-All-Ye's by Manus O'Conor (New York: The Popular Publishing Company, 1901), page 88:


I'M PROUD I'M AN IRISHMAN'S SON.

If I was a son of old England
I'd praise the dear land of my birth;
If the mountains of Scotland had brought me to light
I'd cherish their beauty and worth;
But my chart beats fondly for old Ireland,
And the glorious deeds she has done,
'Till the day I die I'll hold my head high,
For I'm proud I'm an Irishman's son.

CHORUS: So I'll think with a smile of the Emerald Isle,
I'll remember the deeds she has done;
While my heart is unfurled I'll say to the world
I'm proud I'm an Irishman's son.

They may treat me with scorn and derision,
They may bring the hot tear in my eye,
They may say with a sneer when employment I seek,
That an Irishman need not apply.
When I think of the heroes old Ireland's produced,
And the glorious deeds they have done,
I'll still play my part, nnd I'll say from my heart,
I'm proud I'm an Irishman's son. CHORUS

Great song - is it a familiar tune?
