I still recall that day in July,
When you said to me your last goodbye;
And that same night you sailed away,
To distant lands across the sea.

In Connemara by the lake,
Two young hearts had to break;
In County Galway by the sea,
Where I loved you and you loved me.

For five long years I had to wait,
And now you've come at last too late;
For I was told that you were dead,
And yesterday at noon I was wed.

In Connemara by the lake,
Two young hearts had to break;
In County Galway by the sea,
Where I loved you and you loved me.

The western breezes whisper true,
And bring back memories of you;
Of summer days I cannot forget,
In Connemara where we met.

In Connemara by the lake,
Two young hearts had to break;
In County Galway by the sea,
Where I loved you and you loved me.
