W:It was down by the shores of Lough Erne W:I met with this wonderful dame. W:Her voice was so sweet and so pleasing W:These beautiful notes she did sing. W:The innocent fowl of the forest W:Their love unto her they did bring. W: W:It being the first time I saw her W:My heart it did lep with surprise. W:I thought that she could be no mortal W:But an angel that fell from the skies. W:Her hair it resembled gold tresses. W:Her skin was as white as the snow. W:Her cheeks were as red as the roses W:That bloom around Lough Erne's shore. W: W:When I found that my love was eloping W:These words unto her I did say: W:"Oh, take me to your habitation W:For Cupid has led me astray." W:"Forever I'll keep the commandments. W:They say that it is the best plan. W:Fair maids who do yield to men's pleasures W:The scripture does say they are wrong." W: W:"Oh, Mary don't accuse me of weakness, W:For treachery I do disown. W:I will make you a lady of honour W:If with me this night you'll come home. W:Oh, had I the lamp of great Aladdin, W:His rings and his genie what's more. W:I would part with them all for to gain you W:And live upon Lough Erne's shore."
