- (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 DoonTranscribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.

In exile here I roam
Across the waters wild and wide
Far from my native home
The dear old scenes of long ago
I do remember well(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
