The Flower of Magherally

The Flower of Magherally

One pleasant summer's morning, when flowers were a springing-oh
Nature was adorning, and the wee birds sweetly singing - oh
I met my love near Banbridge town, my charming blue-eyed Sally-oh
She is the queen of the county Down, the Flower of Magherally-oh

With admiration I did gaze upon this blue eyed maiden-oh
Adam wasn't so much was pleased when he met with Eve in Eden-oh
Her skin was like the lily white, that grows in yonder valley oh
She is my queen and my hearts delight, the Flower of Magherally-oh

Her yellow hair in ringlets clung, her boots were Spanish leather-oh
Her bonnet with blue ribbons strung, her scarlet cap and feather-oh
Like Venus bright she did appear, my charming blue-eyed Sally-oh
She is the girl that I adore, the Flower of Magherally-oh

I hope the day will surely come when we'll join hands together-oh
It's then I'll bring my darling home in spite of wind and weather-oh
For let them all say what they will, let them rail and rally-oh
For I shall wed the girl I love - the flower of Magherally-oh.
