So fare thee well, sweet Lisa, dear And likewise to Derry town And twice farewell to my comrades bold Who still dwell on that sainted ground If ever fortune, it should favor me And I do have money in store Well, I'll come back and I'll wed the sweet lassie I left On Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore
One evening for pleasure I rambled On the banks of some cold purling stream I set down on a bed of primroses And I gently fell into a dream I dreamt that I saw a fair female Her equal I never saw before And I sighed for the laws of our country As we stray there on Ireland's green shore Her cheeks were like two bloomin' roses Her teeth were like ivory so white Her eyes shone like two sparkling diamonds Or the stars on some cold frosty night


Adam's first release "Kilfenora Set" was recorded by Rotary Records, West Springfield, Massachusetts with Adam Sweet (fiddles, viola, mandolin, mandola, mandocello) and Jim Bunting (guitar, bouzouki, banjo)
