Frank Maher Lyr Req: I Love Old Ireland Still (from D Warfield (17) Lyr Add: I LOVE OLD IRELAND STILL 18 Mar 00


I LOVE OLD IRELAND STILL

Where is the man that does not love the land where he was born,
Who does not think of it with pride, no matter how forlorn?
I only know that I love mine, and long again to see
Oppression from it banished, and old Ireland once more free.

CHORUS: Let friends all turn against me, let foes say what they will,
My heart is with my country. I love old Ireland still.

You'll find no better island if you search the wide world o'er;
And yet she's sneered at and despised, because her offspring's poor!
If she could only have the wealth that lies beneath her soil,
She'd once more prosper, and her sons might live by honest toil.

There's not an Irishman today would ever wish to roam
Into a foreign land to live, if he could live at home.
Then give her liberty, and let her banner be unfurled,
Then Ireland and her sons may prove a credit to the world.

AMEN
