Words And Music by John T. Kelly.

In old Ireland there's a valley where the wild flowers gently blow,
And the ivy twines around a peaceful home;
In this cottage dwells a lassie, she's the dearest one I know,
The only girl my heart has ever known.
My blue-eyed, bonnie Katie, how I sigh for thee and yearn,
I'll keep the vow I promised, in the Spring I will return;
When the pretty May flowers bloom again what joy it will impart,
Then I'll meet once more the girl of my heart.

A home I can see, she's waiting for me,
The dearest of all thou art;
Tho' far from thy side, your love is my guide,
My bonnie Kate, she's the girl of my heart.

Oh! how fondly I remember, at the little county fair,
When the merry, loving sweethearts came to town:
Of the many high-born ladies and the lassies gathered there,
A heav'nly face I saw, with simple gown.
Two lovers meet and hearts are wed, the joy words cannot tell,
Oh! sure I had no rest at all, I lov'd my Kate so well.
When we parted, these few tender words I spoke, while tears did start,
"I'll be faithful to the girl of my heart." - Chorus.
