Mother Machree

Irish Song Lyrics - Mother MachreeCopyright: Rida Johnson Young, Chauncey Olcott and Ernest R. Ball

There's a spot in my heart which no colleen may own
there's a depth in my soul never sounded or known
There's a place in my mem'ry my heart that you fill
no other can take it no one ever will

Oh I love the dear silver that shines in your hair
and the brow that's all furrowed and wrinkled with care
I kiss the dear fingers so toil worn for me
Oh God bless you and keep you Mother Machree

Every sorrow or cure in the dear days gone by
was made bright by the light by the smile in your eye
like a candle the burns in the window at night
you fond love has cheered my and guided me right CHORUS
