W:If I was King of Erin's isle, had all things at my will
W:I would roam throughout creation, new comforts to find still
W:And the comfort I would seek the most, you well might understand
W:Would be to gain lovely Martha, the flower of sweet Strabane
W:Her cheeks they are like the roses red, and her eyes are a lovely brown
W:And over her lily-white shoulders, her hair comes tumbling down
W:She is one of the fairest creatures, and famous is her clan
W:And my heart is fairly captured by the flower of sweet Strabane
W:And if I had you Martha, way down in Inishowen
W:Or in some lonesome valley in the wild woods of Tyrone
W:I would use my whole endeavour, I would strive to work my plan
W:For to gain my prize and feat my eyes on the flower of sweet Strabane
