Spancillhill Lyrics

Cm Bb Cm
L ast night as I lay drea ming of pleasant days gone b
y
Cm Eb Bb
M y mind being bent on rambling to Ire land I did f ly
Cm Eb Bb
I stepped on board a vision and I fol lowed with the w
ind
Cm Bb Cm
A nd I shortly came to an chor at the cross of Spa ncil
Hill

It being the 23rd of June the day before the fair
When lreland's sons and daughters all assembled there
The young and the old, the brave and the bold their
journey to fulfill
But the little church in Cloony a mile from Spancil
Hill

I went to see my neighbors to see what they would say
The old ones were all dead and gone and the young one's
turning grey
I met with tailor Quigley, he's as bould as ever still
Sure he used to make my britches when I lived in
Spancil Hill

I paid the fly and visit to my first and only love
She's as fair as any lily and as gentle as a dove
She threw her arms around me saying "Johnny I love you
still

" Oh she's Ned the rangers daughter and the flower of
Spancil HiII

I dreamt I held and kissed her as in the days of yore
She said, "Johnny you're only joking as many's the time
before"
The cock crew in the morning he crew both loud and
shrill
And I awoke in California, many miles from Spancil
Hill.
