[A7]I'll[D] take you[Em] home a[A7]gain, Kath[D]leen,
Across the[A7] ocean[G] wild and[D] wide
To[D] where your[Em] heart has[A7] ever[D] been,
Since[E] you were first my bonnie[A] bride.
The[G] roses all have left your[D] cheek.
I've[A7] watched them fade away and[D] die;
Your[Bm] voice is sad when e'er you speak,
And[E] tears bedim your loving[A7] eyes.
Chorus:
 
Oh![D] I will[Em] take you back, Kath[D]leen,
To where your[A7] heart will[G] feel no[D] pain,
And[D7] when the[G] fields are fresh and[A] green,
I'II[D] take you[Em to your[A7] home again Kath[Gm]leen,,[D]
 
I know you love me, Kathleen, dear,
Your heart was ever fond and true.
I always feel when you are near
That life holds nothing, dear, but you.
The smiles that once you gave to me
I scarcely ever see them now,
Though many, many times I see
A dark'ning shadow on your brow.
Chorus.
To that dear home beyond the sea
My Kathleen shall again return.
And when thy old friends welcome thee
Thy loving heart will cease to yearn.
Where laughs the little silver stream
Beside your mother's humble cot,
And brightest rays of sunshine gleam
There all your grief will be forgot.
