For Erin is My Home

"Favourite Ballad" as Sung by Miss Watson
Arranged and adapted to a Beautiful Bohemian Melody
by Ignaz Moscheles

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh, I have roam'd many lands,
And many friends I've met;
Not one fair scene or kindly smile,
Can this fond heart forget
But I'll confess that I'm content,
No More I wish to roam;
Oh, steer my bark to Erin's Isle,
For Erin is my home.
Oh, Steer my bark to Erin's Isle,
For Erin is my home.

[Verse 2]
If England were my place of birth,
I'd lover her tranquil shore;
If Bonny Scotland were my home,
Her mountain I'd adore;
Tho' pleasant day in bot I pass,
O dream of days to come;
Oh, steer my bark to Erin's Isle,
For Erin is my home. Oh,
Steer my bark to Erin's Isle,
For Erin is my home.
