I found the following on the Irish Folk Song Lyrics Archive Message Board at http://users.cgiforme.com/irishlyrics/cfmboard.html

Jimmy Mo Mhile Stor 

Bliain an taca seo d’imigh uaim run mo chleibh
Ni thiocfaidh se abhaile go dtabharfaidh se cursa an tsaoil
Nuair chifead e rithead le fuinneamh ro-ard ina chomhair
agus chludod le mil e, is e Jimmy mo mhile stor. 

Bionn mo mhathair is m’athair ag bearradh is ag bruion liom fein
taim giobaithe piocaithe, ciapaithe, craite de m’shaol
Thugas taitneamh don duine ud dob aille sno
agus chuaigh se ar bord loinge, is e Jimmy mo mhile stor 

Rachadsa chun coille agus caithfead ann an chuid eile de m’shoal
san ait na beidh einne ag eisteacht le ceol na n-ean
ag bun an chrainn chaorthainn mar a bhfasann ann fear go leor
ag tabhart taitnamh don duine ud is e Jimmy mo mhile stor

Hope this is waht you needed.

In Service,
Padraig
