3 Fair Norah through tear-drops was
blushing And spoke between sobbings and sighs,
As backward her glossy curls pushing She timidly looked in his eyes.
Dear Larry, you say that you'rcgoing To wed when you come from the war,
I'm afraid you'll be killed, there's no knowing,
"Now could we not marry before, Larry—
Now could we not marry before?
4 Now Larry, how could he ret use her, He saw that he might as well wed
For if he was killed he would lose her, So unto fair Norah he said: Mavoiirneen, it's truth you've been saying, And where there'sa will there's a way. I see there's no use in delaying, I'll wed you this very same day,,
Norah! I'll wed you this very same day.
