There is a dear home that I left behind me.
Far beyond the green mountains in Ireland some where.
Its the home of my childhood where I roamed and rambled.
Banada a coshla my heart travels there.
O Banada mavoureen theres one heart that loves you.
Your charming old beauty again I can see.
As I lay down to slumber in a far foreign pillow
I dream of you Banada a cushla mo croidhe.
Chorus
Farewell: lovely Banada: farewell to the Shamrock.
