Rose Of Tralee (the)

Irish Song Lyrics - Rose Of Tralee (the)Author: C. Mordaunt Spencer and Charles W. Glover

The pale moon was rising above the green mountain
the sun was declining beneath the blue sea
when I strayed with my love to the pure crystal fountain
that stands in the beautiful vale of Tralee

she was lovely and fair as the rose of the summer
but 'twas not her beauty alone that won me
Oh no was the truth in her eyes ever dawning
that made me love Mary, the Rose of Tralee

The cool shades of evening their mantels were spreading
and Mary all smiling was listening to me
the moon thru the valley her pale rays were spreading
when I won the heart of the Rose of Tralee CHORUS
