One evenin' for pleasure
  F                   C           G    C
I rambled to view the fair fields all alone
C                    F
Down by the banks of Loch Erin
      G                        C
Where beauty an' pleasure were known
  Am                       Em
I spied a fair maid at her labor
      Am                      G
Which caused me to stay for a while
      C            Am         Em
An' I thought of a goddess of beauty
F               Fm             C
Bloomin' bright star of Bright Isle.

  C         Am          Em
I humbled myself to her beauty
      F      G              C
"Fair maiden where do you belong?
        C    Am       Em
Are you from heaven descended
Dm                      G7
Abidin' in Cupid's fair throne."
       Am                    Em
"Young man I will tell you a secret
     Am                      Em
It's true I'm a maid that is poor
       C                        Am
And to part from my vows and my promise
   F                        Fm
Is more that my heart can endure.
     C           Em/b       Am
Therefore I'll remain at my service
       Em                          G
And go through all my hardship and toil
    C            Em/b         Am
And wait for the lad that has left me
     F           G              C
All alone on the banks of Belle Isle."

       C        Am          Em
"Young maiden I wish not to banter
      F              G          C
'T'is true I've come here in disguise
       C          Em/b          Am
I came here to fulfill our last promise
    Dm                     G
An' hoped to give you a surprise
  Am                       G
I own you're a maid I love dearly
           Am         Em            G
An' you've been in my heart all the while
    C           Em/b     Am
For me there is no other damsel
        F               G             C
Than my bloomin' bright star of Belle Isle."
