The Parting Glass

  • (Trad)

    Oh all the money e'er I spent
    I spent it in good company
    And all the harm that e'er I've done
    It was, alas! to none but me
    And all I've said through want of wit
    To memory now I can't recall
    So fill to me the parting glass
    Good night and joy be with you all

    Oh all the comrades that e'er I had
    They're sorry for my going away
    And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
    They would wish me one more day to stay
    But since it falls unto my lot
    That I should rise and you should not
    I gently rise and softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh & Hamish Imlach)
