lyrics

It was all for our rightful king
We left fair Scotland’s strand
It was all for our rightful king
We e'er saw Irish land my dear
We e'er saw Irish land

Now all is done that may be done
& all is done in vain
My love & native land farewell
For I must cross the main my dear
For I must cross the main

He turned him right & round about
Upon the Irish shore
& gave his bridal reins a shake
Here’s adieu for ever more my dear
Here’s adieu for ever more

The soldier from the wars returns
The sailor from the main
But I have parted from my love
Never to meet again my dear
Never to meet again

When day is done & night is come
& all folk bound to sleep
I think on him that’s far away
The lee long night & weep my dear
The lee long night & weep
