W:But the rents were getting higher, and I could no longer pay, W:So farewell unto you bonny, bonny Sliabh Gallen braes.] W: W:As I went a-walking one morning in May, W:To view yon fair valleys and mountains so gay, W:I was thinking on those flowers, all doomed to decay, W:That bloom around ye, bonny, bonny, Slieve Gallen braes. W: W:How oft in the morning with my dog and my gun, W:I roamed through the glens for joy and for fun. W:But those days they are all over and I am far away W:So farewell unto ye, bonny, bonny, Slieve Gallen braes. W: W:How oft in the evening and the sun in the West, W:I roved hand in hand with the one I love best. W:But the hopes of youth are vanished and now I'm far away, W:So farewell unto ye, bonny, bonny, Slieve Gallen braes. W: W:It's not the want of employment at home, W:That caused us poor sons of old Ireland to roam. W:But those tyrannising landlords, they would not let us stay, W:So farewell unto ye, bonny, bonny, Slieve Gallen braes. W: W:Farewell to old Ireland the land that is so green, W:To the parish of Lissan and the cross of Ballynascreen. W:May good fortune shine upon you, when I am far away, W:So farewell unto ye, bonny, bonny, Slieve Gallen braes.
