I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen
Thomas P. Westendorf (1875)


I'll take you home again Kathleen
Across the ocean wild and wide
To where your heart has ever been
Since first you were my bonny bride
The roses all have left your cheek
I watched them fade away and die
You voice is sad whene're you speak
And tears bedim your loving eyes

And I will take you home Kathleen
To where your heart will feel no pain
And when the fields are fresh and green
I will take you to your home again

I know you love me Kathleen dear
Your heart was ever fond and true
I always feel when you are near
That life holds nothing dear but you
The smiles that once you gave to me
I scarcely ever see them now
The many, many times I see
A darkening shadow on your brow

And I will take you home Kathleen
To where your heart will feel no pain
And when the fields are fresh and green
I will take you to your home again

To that dear ome beyond the sea
My Kathleen shall again return
And when thy old friends welcome thee
Thy loving heart will cease to yearn
Where laughs the little silver stream
Beside your mother's humble cot
And brightest rays of sunshine gleam
To where your grief will be forgot

And I will take you home Kathleen
To where your heart will feel no pain
And when the fields are fresh and green
I will take you to your home again

And when the fields are fresh and green
I will take you to your home Kathleen
