Irish folk song

Song title: The Flower of
By: Eitre

One pleasant summer’s morning when all the flowers were springing
Nature was adorning and the wee birds sweetly singing
I met my love near Banbridge Town, my charming blue eyed Sally
She’s the queen of the County Down, the flower of Magherally

With admiration I did gaze upon this blue eyed maiden
Adam wasn’t half so much pleased when he met Eve in Eden
Her skin was like the lily white that grows in yonder valley
She’s my queen and my heart’s delight, the flower of Magherally

Her yellow hair in ringlets clung, her shoes were Spanish leather
Her bonnet with blue ribbons strung, her scarlet cap and feather
Like Venus bright she did appear, my charming blue eyed Sally
She’s the girl that I love dear, the flower of Magherally

I hope the day will surely come when we’ll join hands together
‘Tis then I’ll bring my darling home in spite of wind or weather
And let them all say what they will and let them reel and rally
For I shall wed the girl I love, the flower of Magherally
