W:A tender youth was standing where his own true love had been. W:The teardrops from her throbbing eyes across his cheeks streamed o'er, W:for they met at night to say goodbye by the banks of Avonmore. W: W:'Twas not the rustling of the leaves on the branches wild and weird, W:'twas not the sighing western wind that crept through Clara dale, W:that made her tender heart mourn for the boy she did adore, W:for she knew right well he'd ne'er return to the banks of Avonmore. W: W:Well he clasped her close unto his breast and he murmured sweet and true: W:Tonight my ship sails for the West but my love I leave with you, W:and I will pray both night and day, though on a foreign shore, W:for to keep your love far, far away, on the banks of Avonmore. W: W:Now the scene has changed, and England's sons at Flanders stand at bay. W:mid crushing steel and thundering guns their allied ranks gave way W:from the USA a proud convoy sped quickly to the fore W:and in their ranks a Wicklow boy from the banks of Avonmore. W: W:Across the shell-torn fields of France the Prussian lines gave way. W:They tried to quell the wild advance of the exile sons of Erin. W:Victorious true but deadly few the stars and stripes shone over, W:but her true love fell far, far away from the banks of Avonmore. W: W:Now a few short years have come and gone, and again the moon shines clear, W:No more this fair maid walks alone to shed a silent tear, W:but faithful to her soldier boy they've met to part no more W:in a brighter land far, far from the banks of Avonmore.
