Lesley N. Lyr Req: The Cuhlin?..or Coolin? (24) Lyr Add: THO' THE LAST GLIMPSE OF ERIN (T Moore) 14 Jun 00


These may not be what you are looking for, but Thomas Moore set these lyrics to the air Coulin:

Tho' the last glimpse of Erin with sorrow I see,
Yet, wherever thou art shall seem Erin to me.
In exile thy bosom shall still be my home,
And thine eyes make my climate, wherever we roam.

To the gloom of some desert or cold rocky shore,
Where the eye of the stranger can haunt us no more,
I will fly with my Coulin and think the rough wind
Less rude than the foes we leave frowning behind.

And I'll gaze on thy gold hair as graceful it wreathes,
And hang o'er thy soft harp as wildly it breathes;
Nor dread that the cold-hearted Saxon will tear
One chord from that harp, or one lock from that hair.
