Over the Mountain, and down into the Glen To a little Irish Cot in the Valley Where the Thrush and the Linnett Sing there Dittees and there songs and my love leaning over the half door Down by the sea shore, on a cool summers eve, with the wind blowing over the heather, Oh, the moon it shone fair, through her threads of golden hair and she vowed she would love me forever It's not for parting with my sister Kate, It's not for the loss of my Mother.... It's all for the loss of my bonnie Irish lass That I'm Leaving my homeland forever.
