The Man From Kilcorney

Far from his old homeplace the years have left him gray
But he doesn't pine for Kilcorney far away
The eldest of his grandchildren his namesake grandson
On his next birthday will turn twenty one
Married to a good Aussie woman for  three years with two score
He has not been back to Kilcorney for  twenty years  or more
On retirement pension he has turned sixty nine
The work free lifestyle  seems to suit him fine
The  man from Kilcorney a likeable bloke
One who enjoys a beer and can laugh at a joke
The accent he  brought with him with him does remain
That is something till death with him he will retain
A naturalized Aussie and here he will stay
He would feel a stranger in Kilcorney today.
