Sweet Carnlough Bay

Sweet Carnlough Bay – Irish Song

Sweet Carnlough Bay Lyrics

When winter was brawling, o’er high hills and mountains 
And dark were the clouds o’er the deep rolling sea, 
I spied a wee lass as the daylight was dawning 
She was asking the road to sweet Carnlough Bay. 

I said,”My fair lass, I surely will tell ye 
The number of miles or how far it might be 
But if you’ll consent I’ll convoy you a wee bit 
And I’ll show you the road to sweet Carnlough Bay. 

You turn to the right and pass down by the churchyard 
Cross over the river and down by the sea; 
We’ll call in Pat Hamill’s and have a wee drop there 
Just to help us along to sweet Carnlough Bay. 

Here’s a health to Pat Hamill likewise the dear lassie 
And to every laddie that’s listening to me 
And ne’er turn your back on a bonnie young lassie 
When she’s asking the road to sweet Carnlough Bay.
