Lyrics

Decades ago he found me asleep.

I fell into his blue eyes, they were all I could see.

 

A passion so violent turned quickly on me.

What started as milk soon turned to Poitín.

 

 

I cry for forgiveness, but nothing’s redeemed.

I killed my poor baby, my darling Róisín.

 

Chorus:

Róisín Dubh, Róisín Dubh.

Sings in my dreams.

 

Róisín Dubh, Róisín Dubh,

my darling won’t she rest in peace.

 

 

The lake was a mirror for the beauty she breathed,

but her sunlight was stolen as she slid beneath.

 

On a dark country road lined with gray stones,

she laughs in the rushes, we’re never alone.

 

 

I cry for forgiveness, but nothings redeemed.

I killed my poor baby, my darling Róisín.

 

Chorus:

Róisín Dubh, Róisín Dubh

sings in my dreams.

 

Róisín Dubh, Róisín Dubh

my darling won’t she rest in peace.

 

 

She’s buried in sheets by the young maple tree.

Her impossible history stirs the dry leaves, stirs the dry leaves
