The Parting Glass

The Parting Glass published on

Of all the money that ere I spent, I spent it in good company.
And all the harm that I ever did, alas was to none but me.
And all I’ve done for want of wit, to memory now I can’t recall.
So fill me to the parting glass. Goodnight and joy be with you all

Oh, if I had money enough to spend and leisure for 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 in thrall.
So fill me to the parting glass. Goodnight and joy be with you all.

Of all the comrades that ere I had, they’re sorry for my going away,
And of all the sweethearts that ere I had, they wish me one more day to stay,
But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise and you should not,
I will gently rise and I’ll softly call, “Goodnight and joy be with you all!”
I will gently rise and I’ll softly call, “Goodnight and joy be with you all!”
