  1. As a young man Tom Murphy left his first home place in Claramore
    On a journey that took him to a distant shore
    At a time when many young Irish people were leaving Ireland for Countries elsewhere
    For to try out their luck in the big World out there

    When Tom returned to Ireland his hair was no longer dark brown
    He purchased a farm in County Limerick in Tankardstown
    From there he moved to Windsor Ovens in Cork before coming home to grow old in Millstreet
    Not too far from the place where the rivers do meet

    He will be remembered by all who knew him as a likeable bloke
    A man who could laugh at and tell a good joke
    Of his travels he had many great stories to tell
    For one who migrated young in life he did quite well

    Though in life he was one who had lived for many a day
    It is so sad to learn that he has passed away
    He went through his long lived life without harming anyone
    And to his long deceased mother and father he was a good son

    In his first home in view of Clara Mountain he first saw light of day
    And in Millstreet his Hometown his last remains lay
    As a young man Tom Murphy did leave Claramore
    On a journey that took him to a distant shore.
