Seven winters past and gone
I once was young and I once was strong
Shannadee- ah dee ah dee

Six fine times I've felt memories
Buckled to your sweet release
Shannadee- ah dee ah dee

Five times tried to conjure you
Another letter, note or clue
Shannadee- ah dee ah dee

And I'm going to tell everybody
I know that I'm glad to see you
And I'm going to tell everybody
I know that I'm glad to see you
Even though you're coming home
In a box of cedar

For four years you courted I
Your raven hair, your brittle bride
Shannadee- ah dee ah dee

Three more times I tried to find it
Another to match your sweet kind
Shannadee- ah dee ah dee

And I'm going to tell everybody
I know that I'm glad to see you
And I'm going to tell everybody
I'm know that I glad to see you
Even though you're comin' home
In a box of cedar

[sing-song]

What am I to fill these rooms
I make it want the drop of you
Shannadee- ah dee ah dee

Seven winters past and gone
I once was young and I once was strong
Shannadee- ah dee ah dee
