CHORUS SHINE ON KILKENNY WE ARE YOURS ITS HOME FOR US AND HOME IS WHERE OUR HEARTS ARE NEARER SHINE ON KILKENNY WE ARE YOURS LET'S TOAST THIS LAND BENEATH LEINSTER SKY LET'S RAISE A GLASS BOTH YOU AND I SHINE ON KILKENNY, KILKENNY WE ARE YOURS. Kilkenny the Marble City, home sweet home to me and see the lovers hand in hand as the walk along Johns Quay then take me too its castle grounds lookin' over The Nore flowing gracefully down to meet the River Suir CHORUS A county of great hurling skill the black and amber cry to wear the jersey for the Cats is a dream for every boy in Mooncoin where the Rose is sung an anthem for the rower shine on Kilkenny, Kilkenny we are yours CHORUS Its streets are filled with memories its history still remains in Rothe House and in Kytlers of Normans and the Danes, catheral reaches to the sky the house of open doors, shine on Kilkenny, Kilkenny we are yours CHORUS recorded by THE KILKENNYS.
