The Irish Immigrant Irish song lyrics 

I'm sitting on the stile, Mary, where we once sat side by side
                                    On a bright May morning long ago, when first you were my bride
                                    The corn was springing fresh and green, and the lark sang loud and high
                                    And the red was on your lips, Mary, and the love light in your eyes.
                                    Tis but a step down yonder lane, the village Church stands near
                                    The place where we were wed, Mary, I can see the spire from here
                                    But the graveyard lies between, Mary, and my step might break your rest
                                    Where I laid you darling down to sleep with a baby on your breast.
                                    
                                    I'm very lonely now, Mary, for the poor make no new friends
                                    But oh they love the better still the few our Father sends
                                    For you were all I had, Mary, my blessing and my pride
                                    And I've nothing left to care for now since my poor Mary died.
                                    
                                    Yours was the good brave heart, Mary, that still kept hoping on
                                    When the trust in God had left my soul and my arms young strength had gone
                                    There was comfort ever on your lip and a kind look on your brow
                                    And I thank you Mary for the same though you cannot hear me now.
                                    
                                    I'm bidding you a long farewell, my Mary kind and true
                                    But I'll not forget you, darling, in the land I'm going to
                                    They say there's bread and work for all, and the sun shines always there
                                    But I'll ne'er forget old Ireland, were it fifty times as fair.
                                    
                                    And often in those grand old woods I'll sit and shut my eyes
                                    And my heart will wander back again to the place where Mary lies
                                    And I think I'll see that little stile where we sat side by side
                                    In the springing corn and the bright May morn' when first you were my bride.
