"The Shores of Amerikay", also known as "The Shores of America", is a traditional Irish song. The song's narrator is emigrating from Ireland to America, and the song is both a meditation on this and a statement of purpose.

Some versions have Australia and not America as the emigrant's destination.[1]

The song is played in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum's exhibit on Kennedy's Trip to Ireland.[2]
