The Country I’m Leaving Behind

My barque leaves the harbour tomorrow
Across the wide ocean to roam
But Kitty my burden of sorrow
Is more than I wish you to know.

There’s a deep dark cloud hanging o’er me
There’s a mighty great load on my mind
When I think of the prospects before me
And the country I’m leaving behind
So farewell to the green fields of Erin
Farewell to all hearts true and kind
And wherever I’ll be, I’ll be true love to thee
And the country I’m leaving behind.

So Kitty give over your sighing
And don’t shed a tear now for me
For tomorrow my barque will be sailing
Far away cross the wild raging sea.
