The cool shades of evening their mantles were spreading
And Mary, all smiles, sat listening to me
The moon thro’ the valley, her pale rays were shedding
When I won the heart of the Rose of Tralee

Tho’ lovely and fair as the rose of the summer
Yet ‘twas not her beauty alone that won me
Oh no, ‘twas truth in her eye ever dawning
That made me love Mary, the Rose of Tralee
