  1. (continued from previous page)
    And then the Plains of Boyle so bright that stretch beyond Lough Key.
    And when in foreign land I roam I crave no other boon,
    That once again Lough Key to see and climb the rock of Doon.
    O Mary when your winning smile like all the waters blue.
    Lough Key and all its wooded isles are vanished from my view
    It's often I think when far way away I see the sun and moon
    It's often I watched their beams at play above the Rock of Doon.
    O Piper play a merry air, the merriest one you know
    And for a while we'll chase dull care and let our spirits flow,
    O time enough my heart will break, O time enough and soon,
    When fortune far away I seek far from the Rock of Doon
