  Lyrics  

The Kerry Dance Chorus Oh, the days of the Kerry dancing Oh, the ring of the piper's tune Oh, for one of those hours of gladness Gone, alas, like our youth, too soon! When the boys began to gather In the glen of a summer's night And the Kerry piper's tuning Made us long with wild delight! Oh, to think of it Oh, to dream of it Fills my heart with tears! Chorus Was there ever a sweeter Colleen In the dance than Eily More Or a prouder lad than Thady As he boldly took the floor. Lads and lasses to your places Up the middle and down again Ah, the merry hearted laughter Ringing through the happy glen! Oh, to think of it Oh, to dream of it Fills my heart with tears! Chorus Time goes on, and the happy years are dead And one by one the merry hearts are fled Silent now is the wild and lonely glen Where the bright glad laugh will echo ne'er again Only dreaming of days gone by in my heart I hear. Loving voices of old companions Stealing out of the past once more And the sound of the dear old music Soft and sweet as in days of yore. When the boys began to gather In the glen of a summer's night And the Kerry piper's tuning Made us long with wild delight! Oh, to think of it Oh, to dream of it Fills my heart with tears! Chorus
