'TWAS ONLY AN IRISHMAN'S DREAM From the Broadway comedy "Broadway And Buttermilk" (1916) (Music: Rennie Cormack / Lyrics: John J. O'Brien & Al Dubin) Blanche Ring (Broadway Production) - 1916 Henry Burr - 1916 George Wilton Ballard - 1917 Billy Murray with Harry's Tavern Band - 1940 Dick Haymes - 1946 Also recorded by: Willie Brady; Glen Daly; Mick Moloney ORIGINAL LYRICS: Sure you should have seen the scene I saw 'Twas just the other night Oh, I 've never seen the likes of it 'Twas such a pleasant sight I was happy for a moment But now I'm feeling blue For what I saw, I'll see no more 'Twas too good to be true Sure the shamrocks were growing on Broadway Ev'ry girl was an Irish colleen And the town of New York was the county of Cork All the buildings were painted green Sure the Hudson looked just like the Shannon Oh, how good and how real it did seem I could hear Mother singing, the sweet Shannon bells ringin' 'Twas only an Irishman's dream Sure you never miss familiar scenes Until you've been away You will never know what homeland means Till you're away to stay And you welcome each reminder Of the places that you miss I'll give the world to dream again Another dream like this Sure the shamrocks were growing on Broadway Ev'ry girl was an Irish colleen And the town of New York was the county of Cork All the buildings were painted green Sure the Hudson looked just like the Shannon Oh, how good and how real it did seem I could hear Mother singing, the sweet Shannon bells ringin' 'Twas only an Irishman's dream ******************** AS USUALLY RECORDED: Sure I've roamed this wide world over And of all the lands I've seen There's no place I'd rather dwell in Than my little isle of green Only last night I was gazing On a sight that thrilled me through But what I saw I'll see no more 'Twas too good to be true Sure the shamrocks were growing on Broadway Every girl was an Irish colleen And the town of New York was the county of Cork All the buildings were painted green Sure the Hudson looked just like the Shannon Oh, how good and how real it did seem I could hear mother singin', the Shannon bells ringin' 'Twas only an Irishman's dream (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2018)
