Words and Music by Chauncey Olcott.
We stand together, you and I, where we stood years ago,
Beneath the same blue Irish sky, our hearts with joy aglow;
You promised, then, you would he mine, in all your charms arrayed;
I'm here to claim you for my oh a, my pretty Irish maid.
Oh, my love, how I've waited and longed for you. dear:
Time has not changed you. your beauty will never fade,
I'm here to claim, love, your promise of long, long ago;
You are to me, my own, my beautiful Irish maid.
I know the love you gave me then is just as fond and true,
Those eyes of yours speak hope again, sweet eyes of Irish blue.
I know you'll keep your promise, love, tho' stars above may fade;
Thro' storm And shine I've come to you, my pretty Irish maid. -Chorus.
