The Pride of Sliabh Luachra where is she today
She left Gneeveguilla for the U S of A
Did she fall in love marry and mother children from her old Village far away
Or as a single woman did she choose to stay?
The Pride of Sliabh Luachra than her none so fair
With her beautiful blue eyes and shoulder length golden hair
She left Gneeveguilla close to her life's prime
Back in the early seventies that is going back in time
In my flights of fancy i see her again
Walking on the sidewalks of Rathmore in the drizzling rain
The Pride of Sliabh Luachra so lovely to behold
In my imagination she has not grown old
Some four decades of years since then have gone by
On looking back the Seasons how quickly time does fly
A beautiful young woman with a beautiful smile and warmth in her hello
The Pride of Sliabh Luachra many Summers ago.
