I went from my home in the town of Athlone
On my way to the Three Jolly Pigeons
It was near Glassen Town on the road I sat down
And looked over the beautiful Shannon

Oh sad was the day when I went far way
To work among timber and concrete
I must name me a man, for to follow life’s span
I forsook the dear place of my homeland

If God grants me grace I’ll return to the place
When the sunset of life has come o’re me
Once gain on these shores like a bird my heart soars
As I gaze on the beauty around me
