I want to play a traditional Irish song called Red Is The Rose.

Im dedicating this one to the memory of 2 of my musical heroes. Liam Clancy and Tommy Makem ,rest well sweet princes of The Emerald Isle...

"Red is The Rose"
Irish Traditional

Come over the hills my bonnie Irish lass
Come over the hills to your darling
You choose the road love, and I'll make the vow
And I'll be your true love forever

Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
Fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any

Twas down by Killarneys green woods that we strayed
When the moon and the stars they were shining
The moon shone it's rays on her locks of golden hair
And she swore she'd be my love forever

Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
Fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any

Tis not for the parting with my sister Kate
Tis not for the grief of my mother
Tis all for the loss of my bonnie Irish lass
That my heart is breaking forever

Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
Fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any
