Irish

English

At midnight I go to the cliffs
Searching for my lost one
Sitting by the rocks and pleading
For her to return home to me

Chorus:
Oh my brown-haired girl
Bright love of my heart
Come back soon
And be with me again

It's a long time since she left
With my child and my wealth
It is a pity I hid my love from her
The one who is far from me

(Chorus)

Now I'm getting on in years
Sitting alone by the hearth
Thinking of the days that I spent
With my brown-haired girl

Oh my brown-haired girl
Bright love of my heart
Come back soon
And be with me

(Chorus)
