EILEEN (Sylvia Fine / Max Liebman) Slim Whitman - 1964 In a town on the sea by the castle Dooneen 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 And he would return to his promised young bride And there on the shore she could hear it so plain His voice in the wind singing soft this refrain Eileen, Eileen, wait for me, wait my Eileen They were to be wed on a Sunday in May And faith 'twas 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 Oh, no, never more was her heart young and warm Her lover he died, yes he died in a storm But down by the shore, she could still hear so plain His voice in the wind, singing soft this refrain Eileen, Eileen, wait for me, wait my Eileen .. They say that her heart, it was broken in two The lovely Eileen, 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's the years that have past since that day But maidens who wait for their lovers there say That still on the shore, they can hear it so plain His ghost in the wind, singing soft this refrain Eileen, Eileen, please wait for me, wait my Eileen (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2018)
