Loch Erin Shore

One morning as I went afowling
Bright Phoebus adorned the plain
Twas down by the shores of Loch Erin
I met with a wonderful dame
Her voice was so sweet and so pleasing
These beautiful notes she did sing
That the innocent fowl of the forest
Their love unto her they did bring

It being the first time I met her
My heart it did leap with surprise
And I thought that she could be no mortal
But an angel that fell from the skies
Her hair was as bright as gold tresses
Her skin was as white as the snow
And her cheeks were as red as the roses
That bloom along Loch Erin shore

When I heard that my love was eloping
These words unto her I did say
Oh take me to your habitation
For Cupid has led me astray
Oh had I the lamp of great Alladin
His rings and his genie that's more
I would part with them all for to gain you
And live along Loch Erin shore
