AKS ADD: The Green Hills of Kerry (10) Lyr Add: THE HILLS OF KERRY 08 Feb 01


Hi, I have a photocopied page (from 20 y's back or so, don't remember what book, Irish anyway) that gives the stuff above as follows:

THE HILLS OF KERRY

chorus:
The palm trees wave on high along the fertile shore
adieu the Hills of Kerry I ne'er will see no more
Oh why did I leave my home oh why did I cross the sea
and leave the small birds singing around you sweet Tralee

The noble and the brave have departed from our shore
they've gone off to a foreign land where the wild canyons roar
No more they'll see the shamrock, the plant so dear to me
Or hear the small birds singing around sweet Tralee
repeat ch:

No more the sun will shine on that blessed harvest morn
or hear our reaper singing in a golden field of corn
There's a band for every woe and a cure for every pain
But the happiness of my darling girl I never will see again
repeat ch:

Does it sound less 'added' like this (I can not judge, being non-native in English)?
