Liricí AmhránSong Lyrics

A Stór Mo Chroí

Written by Brian O'Higgins

As recorded by Solas on WoodSongs Episode 407

A stór mo chroí, when you’re far away
From the home that you’ll soon be leaving
Oh, it’s many a time by night and by day
That your heart will be sorely grieving
For the stranger’s land may be bright and fair
And rich in its treasures golden
You’ll pine, I know, for the long ago
And the love that you'll soon be leaving
A stór mo chroí, in the stranger’s land
There is plenty of wealth and wailing
While gems adorn the great and the grand
There are faces with hunger paling
Oh, the road may be weary, and hard to tread
And the lights of their cities blind you
Oh, turn, a stór, to Éireann’s shore
And the one who will always love you.
