Hank Locklin – Irish Eyes lyrics

The moonlight on the Shannon
Is a sight to see
The sunlight on Killarney's lakes
Means home sweet home to me.

Of natures many blessings
On this emerald isle
I'd give them for the love-light
In your Irish eyes.

To stroll again through Antrim glen
And see the water fall
To sleep beneath the mystic hills
In dear old Donegal.

Or walk the shores of Erne
And hear the seagulls cry
But most of all to look into
Your smiling Irish eyes.

To hear again those Shandon Bells
Ringing heavenly
Beside the Lough and waters
Of the lovely Lee.

Or listen to the ocean
And the wind that sighs
But most of all to see again
Your lovely Irish eyes.

--- Instrumental ---

In dreams I see your angel's wings
That aches my lonely heart
The memory when I told you
We would have to part.

I can't forget that morning
When we said goodbye
I can't forget the teardrops
In your Irish eyes

I love you and I need you
Beautiful Irish eyes...
