Where The Three Counties Meet, Irish folk / country song lyrics and guitar chords, written by Patrick Farrell. The video is of Maureen Derry, great singing.
 

[G]Oh how lovely to be on the[C] shores of Lough[G] Rea
on a beautiful[Em] mid summer’s[Am] morn[D7]ing
looking[G] over the lake where the[C] waters do[G] break
by the[C] hills in the[D7] County Roscom[G]mon
Oh I left from my home in the town of Athlone
on the way to the Three Jolly Pidgeons(?)
it was by Glassen Town on the road I sat down
and I looked o’re the beautiful Shannon
CHORUS
[G]Lough Rea oh Lough[G7] Rea where the[C] three counties[G] meet
Longford, West[Em] meath and Ros[Am]common,,[D7]
as I[G] strolled ‘round her banks be the[C] heather and[G] peat
they’re the[C] mem’ries I’ve[D7] never for[G]gotten
Oh sad was the day when I went far way
to work amongst timber and concrete
as I made me a plan for to follow life’s span
I forsook the dear place of my homeland
If God grants me grace I’ll return to the place
when the twilight of life has come o’re me
as I stand on your shores like a bird my heart soars
as I gaze on the beauty around me
