I can't believe that Digital Tradition does not have the lyrics to this old Irish tearjerker. I have not been successful in finding it.

I promised the words to a friend, and will be soundly embarrassed if I can't find them.

Thanks.

Hi,

There are verses, which I can't remember. Here's what I remember of the chorus.

A mother's loves a blessing, no matter where you roam
Love (?keep) her while she's living, you'll miss her when she's gone
Love her as in childhood, though she's feeble old and grey (charming eh??!!)
For you'll never miss your mother's love 'til she's buried beneath the clay.

Maybe this'll help someone else remember.

Slainte

A MOTHER'S LOVE'S A BLESSING
(T. P. Keenan)

An Irish boy was leaving,
Leaving his native home,
Crossing the broad Atlantic,
Once more he wished to roam,
And as he was leaving his mother,
Who was standing on the quay,
She threw her arms around his waist,
And this to him did say,

CHORUS
A mother's love's a blessing,
No matter where you roam,
Keep her while she's living,
You'll miss her when she's gone,
Love her as in childhood,
Though feeble, old and grey,
For you'll never miss a mother's love,
Till she's buried beneath the clay,

And as the years go onwards,
I'll settle down in life,
And choose a nice young colleen,
And take her for my wife,
And as the babes grow older,
And climb around my knee,
I'll teach them the very same lesson,
That my mother taught to me.

CHORUS


slainte

alison ^^

Thanks Alison. After posting my message I found the other thread, and found my song buried obscurely in the middle of it.

Keep the Faith

DeDannan recorded this on their Ballroom disc, if I remember correctly. Seems like there should be more verses, though.

I need to find a song and do not know the name but some words from the song from the late thirties. As I gaze up in the sky my story book says angels fly. If do I want togothere by and by, for when they told me you had died, I just hung my head and cried, for I knew I would be an orphan child.

A Mother's Love Is A Blessing [print]
(Thomas P Keenan)

An Irish boy was leaving
Leaving his native home
Crossing the broad Atlantic
Once more he wished to roam
And as he was leaving his mother
Who was standing on the quay
She threw her arms around his waist
And this to him did say

A mother's love's a blessing
No matter where you roam
Keep her while she's living
You'll miss her when she's gone
Love her as in childhood
Though feeble, old and grey
For you'll never miss a mother's love
Till she's buried beneath the clay

And as the years go onwards
I'll settle down in life
And choose a nice young colleen
And take her for my wife
And as the babes grow older
And climb around my knee
I'll teach them the very same lesson
That my mother taught to me

A mother's love's a blessing
No matter where you roam
Keep her while she's living
You'll miss her when she's gone
Love her as in childhood
Though feeble, old and grey
For you'll never miss a mother's love
Till she's buried beneath the clay
