in her flamin' eyes of blue
but the loneliest you have seen
stands there barefoot by the shore
like a widows walk that has their door
and a voice she's heard not seen
for many years she sailed alone
merry but one day when he
went away and then those arms
his Kathleen
silently she holds her head
like as proud and beautiful she is
faith like no one ever says said
that the reasons seasons woe the length of days
would the cruel stormy sea
take her love and just never tell life when
and each day on bended knee
she would beg the spirit of the wind

oh Kathleen


begs the spirit of wind
send him safely home from sea
so that love on this isle can bloom again
oh Kathleen
