Ringsend Rose

Ringsend Rose – Irish Song

Ringsend Rose Lyrics

In Dublin Town there lived a girl
Fairer than the flower I’m wearin’
Rose Donoghue–all fresh and new
And I love her past all carin’

Chorus:

And there she goes my Ringsend Rose
In God’s Garden there’s none rarer
And there she goes my Ringsend Rose
Dublin Town has seen none fairer

Sweet seventeen, my seamstress queen
She’s no bigger than a thimble
Soft satin skin, street Arab’s grin
Sure she makes the work looks simple
Chorus:

Three yards of lace to walk with grace
And the golden ring she’s askin’
The savin’s slow–ah but still I know
That our love is ever-lasting
Chorus:

And there she goes my Ringsend Rose
In God’s Garden there’s none rarer
And there she goes my Ringsend Rose
Dublin Town has seen none fairer
