    "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen" Lyrics

    The Platters

    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 bonnie bride.
    The roses all have left your cheek.
    I've watched them fade away and die
    Your voice is sad when e'er you speak
    And tears bedim your loving eyes.

    Oh! I will take you back, Kathleen
    To where your heart will feel no pain

    And when the fields are fresh and green
    I'II 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
    Though many, many times I see
    A dark'ning shadow on your brow.


    To that dear home 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
    There all your grief will be forgot.
