An Irish Lullaby (Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra)

Performed by Marc Gunn
From: Not Every Day Is St. Patrick's Day

words and music J.R. Shannon

Over in Killarney
Many years ago,
Me Mither sang a song to me
In tones so sweet and low.
Just a simple little ditty,
In her good ould Irish way,
And l'd give the world if she could sing
That song to me this day.

"Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, hush now, don't you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, that's an Irish lullaby."

Oft in dreams I wander
To that cot again,
I feel her arms a-huggin' me
As when she held me then.
And I hear her voice a -hummin'
To me as in days of yore,
When she used to rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door.

Chords: KEY C

Background: Originally recorded by Bing Crosby, the words are by J.R. Shannon in the 1890s though I suspect the melody is much much older...perhaps as old as the days of Yore?)
