Come to the Bower
Will you come to the bower o'er the free boundless ocean Where the stupendous waves roll in thunder and motion Where the mermaid is seen and the fierce tempest gathers To loved Erin the Green the dear land of our fathers Ch. Will you come, will you, will you, will you come to the bower Will you come, will you, will you, will you come to the bower Will you come to the land of O'Neill and O'Donnell Robert Emmet and Wolfe Tone and the immortal Dan O'Connell Where King Brian drove the Danes and St Patrick the vermin And whose valleys remain still most beautiful and charming You can visit Benburb and the storied Blackwater Where Owen Roe met Munroe and his chieftains did slaughter Where the lambs skip and play on the mossy all over From these bright golden views to enchanting Rostrevor You can see Dublin City and the fine groves of Blarney The Bann, Boyne and Liffey and the Lakes of Killarney Where King Brian drove the Danes and St Patrick the vermin And whose valleys remain still most beautiful and charming Will you come and awake our lost land from its slumber And together we will break, chains that long have encumbered And the air will resound with hosannas to meet you On the shore will be found gallant Irishmen to greet you
