Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Flower of Magherally, The

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

One pleasant summer's morning when all the flowers were springing O
Nature was a-dawning and the wee birds sweetly singing O
I met my love near Banbridge Town, my charming blue-eyed Sally O
She's the queen of the County Down, the flower of Magherally O

With admiration I did gaze upon this blue-eyed maiden O
Adam wasn't half as pleased when he first met Eve in Eden O
Her skin was like the lily white that grows in yonder valley O
She's my queen and my heart's delight, the flower of Magherally O

Her yellow hair in ringlets hung, her boots were Spanish leather O
Her bonnet with blue ribbons strung, her scarlet scarf and feather O
Like Venus bright she did appear, my charming blue-eyed Sally O
She's the girl that I love dear, the flower of Magherally O

I hope the day will surely come when we'll join hands together O
'Tis then I'll bring my darling home in spite of wind and weather O
And let them all say what they will and let them reel and rally O
For I shall wed the girl I love, the flower of Magherally O
