PALM TREES WAVE ON HIGH. AKA - "Hills of Kerry (The)," "Palm Trees of Kerry (The)," "Sweet Tralee." Irish, Air or Waltz (3/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The melody is the air to the song "(Green) Hills of Kerry" AKA "Sweet Tralee," which begins:

The noble and the brave have departed from our shore,
They've gone off to a foreign land where the wild cannons roar;
No more they'll see the shamrock, the plant so dear to me,
Or hear the small birds singing around sweet Tralee.

Chorus:
The Palm trees wave on high along the fertile shore,
Adieu the Hills of Kerry I never will see no more;
Oh why did I leave my home, oh why did I cross the sea,
And leave the small birds singing around you sweet Tralee.
