lyrics

True Born Son
Chorus:
I am a true born son of Ireland, a man both proud and free.
And someday soon I’ll return to you, my home and native country.

Me father came from Ireland, where he left his native shore,
To travel cross the ocean deep, never to return no more.
He met me mother on the trip, and courted her every day.
She finally had to acquiesce, and I was conceived on the way.

CHORUS 1

We made our new home in Canada, and had some relations there.
And settled down near Niagara Falls, where the US of A is near.
We became fond of both countries: The Yanks and the Canadians.
And some of them became us, and we became them.

CHORUS 2
Our children’s children have children now: both Yanks and Canadians.
But our hearts will always be back home, in our native land.

CHORUS 3, 4 - Copyright 2014 Liam Park
