In the days I went a courtin',|
I was never tired resortin'
To the alehouse and the playhouse
Or many a house beside,
I told me brother Seamus
l'd go off and go right famous
And before l'd return again
l'd roam the world wide.
2. I've courted girls in Blarney,|
In Kanturk and in Killarney
In Passage and in Queenstown,
That is the Cobh of Cork.
But goodbye to all this pleasure,
For l'm going to take me leisure
And the next time you will hear from me
Will be a letter from New York,
3. Goodbye to all the boys at home,
