I'll take you home again Kathleen: Westendorf arr Parry


I'll take you home again Kathleen
across the ocean wide and wild
to where your heart has ever been
since first you were my blushing bride

the roses all have left your cheek
I watched them fade away and die
your voice is sad whene're you speak
and tears bedim thy loving eye

but I will take you back Kathleen
to where your heart will feel no pain
and when the fields are fresh and green
I will take you to your home Kathleen

I know you love me Kathleen dear
your heart was ever fond and true
I always feel when you are near
that life holds nothing dear but you

The smiles that once you gave to me
I scarecly ever see them now
though many, many times I see
a darkening shadow on your brow

But I will take you back Kathleen
to where your heart will feel no pain

and when the fields are fresh and green
I will take you to your home again
