The Parting Glass Lyrics

Oh all the money that e'er I had, I spent it in good
company
And all the harm that e'er I've done, alas, it was to
none but me
And all I've done for want of wit to memory now I can't
recall
So fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be
with you all
Oh all the comrades that e'er I've had, they are sorry
for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had, they would
wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise and
you should not
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call good night and
joy be with you all
If I had money enough to spend and leisure time to sit
awhile
There is a fair maid in this town, that sorely has my
heart beguiled
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips I own, she has my heart
enthralled
So fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be
with you all
My dearest dear, the time draws near when here no
longer can I stay

There's not a comrade I leave behind, but is grieving
for my going away
But since it has so ordered been what is once past
can't be recalled
Now fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be
with you all
If I had money for to spend, If I had time to waste
away
There is a fair maid in this town, I feign would while
her heart away
With her rosy cheeks and dimpled chin, my heart she has
beguiled awa'
So fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be
with you a'
If I had money for to spend, I would spend it in her
company
And all the harm that I have done, I hope it's pardoned
I will be
And all I've done for want of it to memory I can't
recall
So fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be
with you all
A man may drink and not be drunk, a man may fight and
not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl and perhaps be welcomed
back again
But since it has so ordered been by a time to rise and
a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy
be with you all
