Wild Irish Rose

C. Olcott


My wild Irish rose
The sweetest flower that grows
You may search everywhere
But none can compare
With my wild Irish rose.
My wild Irish rose
The sweetest flower that grows
And someday for my sake
She may let me take
The bloom from my wild Irish rose.

The words and music are by singer-songwriter Chauncey Olcott, who also wrote "Mother Machree" and "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" he also made popular "An Irish Lullaby" by James Royce Shannon.
