"Ulster My Home"

We're still collecting poems and song of Orange and Patriotic meaning for our online compendium, here's one of my favourites so far.

ULSTER MY HOME

Ulster my home
I’ll leave you never
Ulster my home
Sweeter than ever
Though far I may roam
The bonds never sev’re
Ulster my home
Ulster forever.


Now the steep glens of Antrim
Keep calling to me
The county of Derry
I’m longing to see
The hills of Fermanagh
Armagh and Tyrone
The sweep of the down land
Keeps calling me home.

Chorus.

The blue sky above me
The deep rolling sea
The green velvet meadows
The soft blowing breeze
The old village church bells
How sweetly they chime
The rose covered cottage
The wild mountain tyme.

Chorus.
