One morning early I walked forth By the margin of Lough Leane The sunshine dressed the trees in green And
summer bloomed again I left the town and wandered on Through fields all green and gay And whom should I meet but
a colleen sweet At the dawning of the day. No cap or cloak this maiden wore Her neck and feet were bare Down to
the grass in ringlets fell Her glossy golden hair A milking pail was in her hand She was lovely, young and gay She
wore the palm from Venus bright By the dawning of the day.
On a mossy bank I sat me down With the maiden by my
side With gentle words I courted her And asked her to be my bride She said, "Young man don't bring me blame" And
swiftly turned away And the morning light was shining bright At the dawning of the day
