Slim Whitman – I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen lyrics

I'll take you home again
Across the ocean
Wild and wi-ide
To where your heart
Has ever bee-een
Since first you were
My bonnie bride
The roses all
Have left your cheek
I watched them
Fade away and die
Your voice is sad
When you speak
And tears bedim
Your lovin' eyes
Oh-oh-oh-oh-I will take you back
To where your heart
Will feel no pai-ain
And when the fields
Are fresh and gree-een
I-I'ii take you to your home
Mm-mm, mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
And when the fields
Are fresh and gree-een...
I-I-I'ii take you to your home

    Error: i'll take you home again, kathleen is a popular song written by thomas P. Westendorf in 1875. In spite of its american origins, it is known and revered as an irish ballad. Westendorf, a school teacher in plainfield, indiana, wrote it for his wife (who was, however, named jennie). It's in the form of an "answer" to a popular ballad of the time, "barney, take me home again. "
    My father named me for this song in 1956 so I love it. Ronan tynon of the 3 irish tenors makes me cry when he sings it so beautifully. Thank you.
