Kathleen of Fiddler’s Green

It was in Fiddler’s Green
Where I met dear Kathleen
She had emerald eyes
Her cherry hair was so clean

I chased her through prairies
Of shamrocks and fairies
Who’d follow her like flies
The only daughter of an Irish Queen

Kathleen was from Fiddler’s Green, dear friends
Kathleen was from Fiddler’s Green
Let’s drink another round for that lass
Kathleen of Fiddler’s Green

I was not your typical knight
I taught myself to read ‘n write
She was elegant and so wise
She was a fair and true delight

We often talked through the night
She had a sensitive kind of insight
She was of an almost similar size
She loved it when I’d recite

Sonnets written by Shakespeare
Verses and Couplets by William Blake
We’d sometimes set up camp
By our favorite cool and calm lake

Oh, how I cared for that sweet lass
She was upset I acted so mean
I pray she’ll one day forgive me
Fair Kathleen of Fiddler’s Green

Kathleen was from Fiddler’s Green, dear friends
Kathleen was from Fiddler’s Green
I’ll ne’er regret nor will I ever forget
Kathleen of Fiddler’s Green.

Lyric Notes:  I knew a girl named Kathleen Connair in the 2nd Grade at Holy Cross School in Santa Cruz, and thought what a fun thing to do… write a song based around her name.  I’ve seen plenty of songs with Kathleen in the title, I am sure one more would not hurt.
