Ramblin Irishman

E-Mail Drucken PDF
1.    I am a ramling Irishman
in Ulster I was born
and many happy hours I spent
on the banks of sweet Lough Erin.
But to live poor I could not endure
as other of my station
to America I sailed away
and left this Irish nation.

Refr.

2.    The night before I went away
I spent it with my darling
from 3 o clock in the afternoon
till the break of day next morning.
But when that we were going to part
we lay in each others arms.
You mybe sure very sure.
It wounded both our charms.

Refr.

3.    The very first night I slept on board
I dreamt about my Nancy
I dreamt I held her in my arms
and she pleased well my fancy.
But when I woke out of my dream
I found my bed was empty
you maybe sure, very sure
that I lay discontented.

Refr.

4.    When we arrived on the oter side
we were both stout and healthy
we dropped our anchor in the bay
going down to Philadelphia.
But to live poor I could not endure
as others of my station.
To American I sailed away
and left this Irish nation.
