Jolly Roving Tar Lyrics

Well here we are, we're back again safe upon the shore.
In Belfast town we'd like to stay and go to sea no more.

We'll go into a public house and drink till were content.
For the lassies they will love us till our money is all spent.

So pass the flowing bowl boys there's whisky in the jar
and we'll drink to all the lassies at the Jolly Roving Tar.

Oh Johnny did ya miss me when the nights were long and cold,
or did you find another love in your arms to hold.

Says he, "I thought of only you while on the sea afar
so come up the stairs and cuddle with your Jolly Roving Tar!"

So pass the flowing bowl boys there's whisky in the jar
and we'll drink to all the lassies at the Jolly Roving Tar.

Well in each others arms they rode till the break of day.
When the sailor rose and said "Farewell I must be on me way."
"Why don't ya leave me Johnny lad, I thought you'd marry me!
"Says he "I can't get married for I'm married to the sea!"

So pass the flowing bowl boys there's whisky in the jar
and we'll drink to all the lassies at the Jolly Roving Tar.

Well come on you buddy lassies now, a warning take by me.
Never trust an Irishman an inch above your knee!

He'll tease you and he'll please you but when he's had his fun,
he'll leave you in the morning with a daughter or a son!

So pass the flowing bowl while there's whisky in the jar
and we'll drink to all the lassies at the Jolly Roving Tar.

So pass the flowing bowl while there's whisky in the jar
and we'll drink to all the lassies at the Jolly Roving Tar.
