Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 49
PRETTY KATE McSHANE.
Copyright, 1893, by Spaulding & Kornder.
Words and music by John H. W. Byrne.
Down the lane there lives a maiden, she's the girl I most admire,
She is charming, sweet and pretty, to make her my own I desire;
When we met 'twas in the evening, and to-night we meet again.
I asked her name at parting, and she told me Kate McShane.
Pretty Kate McShane, shall I once again
See your sweet face smiling at the window pane,
As I come down the lane, a pleasant smile to gain,
Shall I meet my pretty Kate McShane!
She is tall and very graceful, and her eyes are azure blue,
And her hair a trifle curly, I know she will ever be true;
Gentle words she always utters, so refined and never vain,
To me there's no one like her, she's my pretty Kate McShane.-Refrain.
