-THE IRISH WEDDING KNOT-


-THE IRISH WEDDING KNOT-

Have you ever seen a Wedding Knot
Carved from one piece of wood,
Given to an Irish Bride
Before the alter where they stood.

The one I have is walnut
Made by a loving hand.
It was passed down to my father
Just as his mother planned.

A marriage of a lifetime
Carved into that little knot.
A tiny little wooden cage...
Wooden ball within the slot.

That wooden ball just stays there
sliding 'round inside that cage,
Never will it be removed...
Never will it disengage.

Three marriages it's gone through
Each one has lasted long....
And as long as it remains inside
Your marriage won't go wrong.

This special knot I'll treasure
Three generations through.
This loving Irish Wedding Knot
Binds my love to me so true.
