Recorded live, at Mannion's Irish Pub in Somerville NJ, on January 21, 2011.
Oh, all the money e'er I had, I spent it in good company
And all the harm that ever I've done, alas it was to none but me
And all I've done for want of wit to mem'ry now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass, Good night and joy be with you all
If I had money enough to spend, and leisure time to rest awhile
There is a fair maid in this town, who sorely has my heart beguiled
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips, I own she has my heart enthralled
So fill to me the parting glass, Good night and joy be with you all.
Oh, all the comrades e'er I had, they're sorry for my going away.
And all the sweethearts e'er I had, they wished 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 softly call, Goodnight and joy be with you all.
