Artist/Band: Bing Crosby
Lyrics for Song: Eileen
Lyrics for Album: When Irish Eyes Are Smiling [2011]



In a town on the sea, by the castle Doonee

The fairest of all, was the maiden Eileen

The bloom on her cheek was as fresh as the dew

And her heart to a young fisher laddie was true



At morn he would sail with the sun and the tide

That he would return to his promised young bride

And down by the shore she could hear it so plain

His voice in the wind singing soft this refrain



Eileen, my Eileen, oh wait for me wait Eileen



They were to be wed on a Sunday in May

In faith it was a joy to see Eileen so gay

The morning before he set sail with the tide

But he never returned to his promised young bride



No, no, never more was her heart light and warm

Her lover he died, yes he died in a storm

And down by the shore, she could hear it so plain

His voice in the wind, singing soft this refrain



Eileen, my Eileen, oh wait for me wait Eileen



They say that her heart it was broken in two

The lovely Eileen oh so young and so true

And down by the shore they who loved her the best

By the rock where she waited, they laid her to rest



Oh many the years that have past since that day

But maidens who wait for their lovers they say

That down on the shore they could still hear so plain

His ghost in the wind, singing soft this refrain



Eileen, my Eileen, oh wait for me wait Eileen
