Abstract

VERSE 1
Tipperary Tommy was a soldier boy,
Brave as any lad could be,
Tipperary Mary was a pretty lass,Ti
Waiting for her Tommy ‘cross the sea,
In her heart, in her heart a beating feeling tells
Of a love that is all true bblue,
And in her ear a song Tommy sang will linger long,
And thrill her thru’ and thru’:

CHORUS
Tip Top Tipperary Mary,
I love you true,
Tip Top Tipperary Mary,
My love’s true as your eyes of blue,
I dream of your endearing young charms,
Ev’ry night ‘thru
Tho’ I’m far away from Tipperary, Mary,
My heart’s with you.

VERSE 2
Tipperary Tommy, so the story goes,
Told a comrade one dark night,
“Ev’ry thing is fading, it’s myself that knows
Never ever more will Tommy fight,
In my heart, in my heart a throbbing seems to tell
Of my Mary so far away,
When you go marching home,
Sing to Mary ‘cross the foam
This song I sang one day.”

CHORUS
