Where My Eileen Is Waiting


I am always light-hearted and easy, 
Not a care in the world have I, 
For I know I am loved by a colleen 
And I could not forget if I tried. 
She lives far away o'er the mountain 
Where the little birds sing on the trees; 
In a cottage all covered with ivy 
My Eileen is waiting for me. 

It's over, it's over the mountain 
Where the little birds sing on the trees, 
In a cottage all covered with ivy 
My Eileen is waiting for me. 

The time I bade good-bye to Eileen 
Is a time I will never forget 
For the tears bubbled up from their slumbers 
I fancy I see them yet; 
They looked like the pearls in the ocean 
As she wept her tale of love. 
And she said "My dear boy, don't forget me 
Till we meet here again or above.

It's over, it's over the mountain 
Where the little birds sing on the trees, 
In a cottage all covered with ivy 
My Eileen is waiting for me.
