    The old claddagh ring
    Sure it was my grandmother's
    She wore it a lifetime and gave it to me
    All through the long years she wore it so proudly
    It was made where the Claddagh
    Rolls down to the sea
    What tales it could tell of trials and of hardships
    And of grand happy days
    When the whole world would sing
    So away with your sorrw,
    'Twill bring love tomorrow
    Sure everyone loves it the old claddagh ring
    With a crown and a crest to remind us of honour
    And clasping the heart
    That God's message would bring
    A circle of gold always kept us contented
    With true love entwined in the old claddagh ring
    As she knelt at her prayers
    And thought of her drear ones
    Her soft gentle smile would charm a King
    On her worn hands as she told me her story
    You could see the bright glint
    On the gold claddagh ring

    My thoughts today though I'm far away
    Belong to Connell's shores
    The saucy air and the cailins fair
    And lovely green Gweedore
    There's a flower there beyond compare
    That I cherish evermore
    That grand cailin in her gown of green
    She's the rose of Oranmore

    I was dreaming of old Ireland
    And Killarney's lakes and fells
    I was dreaming of the shamrocks
    And the dear old Shandon Bells
    My memory suggested
    In a vision bright and clear
    Of the strange things that could happen
    If we had old Ireland here
    If the Blarney stones stood out on Sydney Harbour
    And Dublin town to Melbourne came to stay
    If the river Shannon flowed
    Through Brisbane waters
    And Killarney's lakes flowed into Botany Bay
    If the Shandon Bells rang out in old Freemantle
    And County Cork at Adelaide did appear
    Ireland's sons would never roam
    They would always stay at thome
    If we only had old Ireland over here
    Irelands sons would never roam
    They would always stay at home
    If we only had old Ireland over here
