Bridget O'Malley

(Kate Power & Steve Einhorn)
Traditional
Bridget O'Malley, you have my heart shaken
With a hopeless desolation, I'll have you to know
It's the wonder of admiration, your quiet face has taken
And your beauty will haunt me, wherever I go.

The white moon above the pale sands, the pale stars above the thorn tree
Are cold beside my darling but no purer than she
I gaze upon the cold moon till the stars drown in the warm sea
And the bright eyes of my darling are never on me.

The day it is approaching when we were to be married
And it's rather I would die than live only to grieve
Oh, meet me, my darling, e'er the sun sets o'er the barley
And I'll meet you there on the road to Drum Slieve

Bridget O'Malley, you have my heart shaken
With a hopeless desolation, I'll have you to know
It's the wonder of admiration, your quiet face has taken
And your beauty will haunt me, wherever I go.
