Heo snow white wings they are

Remember me remember me,
Good bi my love remember me,

Good bie my lovr my souls bright pos
My lovely dark hair'd dlue-eyed girl,
To leave you here my hea t feels sore,
Good bie my love we'i meet once more,
Good bie my love we'l meet once more
My heart and hadd I give to thee,

To leave you heare my heart feels sere
Good bye my love we'll meet once more
Frewell gaeen fislds and silery tide,
Ante you Killaroey Iselands pride

With you aiy bouy lasey gay,
For I have loitered many an hour away
The night is pessed now comes the day,
Alas my freiads I am away,
Here's my hand bnt you haws my heart,
My heart and I and Lgive a thee,
Old Ireland boys rememcar me,
