American Old Time Song Lyrics: 34 Beautiful Isle Of The Sea
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 34
BEAUTIFUL ISLE OF THE SEA:
Beautiful isle of the sea, smile on the brow of the waters;
Dear are your mem'ries unto me, sweet as the songs of your daughters;
Over your mountains and vales, down by each murmuring river,
Cheered by the flower-loving gales-oh! could I wander forever?
Land of the true and the old, home ever dear unto me-
Fountain of pleasures untold, beautiful isle of the sea.
Oft, on your shell-girdled shore, evening has found me reclining,
Visions of youth dreaming o'er, down where the light-house was shining;
Far from the gladness you gave, far from all joys worth possessing,
Still o'er the lone, weary wave comes to the wanderer your blessing.-Chor.
