The Boys from County Armagh

The Boys from County Armagh – Irish Song

Lyrics of The Boys from County Armagh

There’s one fair county in Ireland 
with memories so glorious and grand 
where nature has lavished its bounty
it’s the orchard of Erin’s green land 

I love her cathedral and city 
once founded by Patrick so true 
and it bears in the heart of it’s bosom the ashes of Brian Boru 

It’s my own Irish home 
far across the foam 
although I’ve often left it 
in foreign lands to roam 
no matter where I wander 
through cities near or far 
sure, my heart’s at home in old Ireland 
in the County of Armagh 

I’ve traveled that part of the county through 
New Town, Fork Hill, Crossmaglen 
Around by the gap of MountNorris 
and home by Blackwater again 
Where the girls are so gay and so hearty 
None fairer in Erin Go Bragh 
But where are the boys that can court them 
Like the boys from the county Armagh?
