The boys from county Armagh….famous song

There’s one fair county in Ireland
With memory so glorious and grand
Where nature has lavished her bounty
On the orchard of Erins great land
I love its cathedral city
Once founded by Patrick so true
And there in the heart of it’s bosom
Are the ashes of Brian Boru

It’s my own Irish home far across the foam
And tho’ I’ve often left it in foreign lands to roam
No matter where I wander
Through cities near and far
My heart’s at home in old Ireland
In the county of Armagh

I’ve travelled the heart of this county
Through Newtown, Forkhill, Crossmaglen
Around the gap of Mount Norris
And home by Blackwater again
Where the girls are so gay and so hearty
None fairer in Erin Go Bragh
Ah, where are the boys that can court them
Like the boys from the county Armagh

Chorus

A great song to learn for your tour of Ireland…..
