Jim Dixon Lyr Req: McNulty Family songs (54* d) Lyr Add: I'M SIGHING TONIGHT FOR KILLARNEY AND YOU 02 Feb 20

You can hear this recording at the Internet Archive:

As recorded by the McNulty Family (Decca 12089 A), 1937.

For dear old Killarney tonight I am sighing.
In fancy I wander far over the sea
To the green hills and dells and the lakes of Killarney,
Back to the old home where I long to be.

Back to the land where the skies are the bluest,
And to the scenes that I once used to know,
To my own sweet colleen whose dear heart is the truest,
Who promised me she would wait long ago.

In far off Killarney the bright sun is shining,
And on her green hills all the wildflowers grow fair.
For the colleen I left there my poor heart is pining.
Daytime and nighttime I long to be there.

I long to return where the shamrocks are growing,
To stroll 'mid the clover all heavy with dew,
And to scent the sweet fragrance the south winds are blowing,
Just to whisper again love's old story to you.

Killarney, Killarney, the place that I love,
With its lakes clear and blue as the bright sky above,
Where we told love's sweet story and vowed to be true,
I am sighing tonight for Killarney and you.
