North Amerikay Lyrics

Ye lovers all both great and small, who dwell in
Ireland
Oh I pray you pay attention, whilst I my pen command
It was my father’s anger that drove my love away
But I still have hopes we’ll meet again in North
Amerikay

My love he was fair and handsome and to him I gave my
heart
Ah but little was our notion that we would ever part
It was in my father’s garden, that this flower it did
decay
But I still have hopes t'wil' bloom again, in North
Amerikay

Now I did not want for money, kind fortune on me shone
So out of my father’s castle I took 300 pounds
It was in the town of Belfast, my passage I did pay
And then set sail across the sea to far Amerikay

Now the captain’s wife was kind to me, as you may
understand
And she kept me in her cabin until we reached dry land
It was in the town of Quebec we landed on the Cay
But I knew not where to seek my love in all Amerikay

Now I being sick and sore and tired, well I went into
an inn
And it was there I met my William, the lad I loved,
within
He took me gently by the hand and to me he did say
Oh I never thought I'd see your face in North Amerikay

Now I hear this couple have got wed as you may
understand
And I hear they live quite happily in a town they call
Saint Johns
And the money that she took from home, well in gold she
paid it down
And they think no more of Ireland nor Enniskillin Town
