MANY YOUNG MEN OF TWENTY?

Many young men of twenty said goodbye
On that long day
From break of dawn until the sun was high
Many young men of twenty said goodbye

They loved the mountains and the glens
The lassies and the fine young men.
I saw the tear of every girl and boy
Many young men of twenty said goodbye

My boy Jimmy left that day
When the big ship sailed away
He sailed away and left me here to die
Many young men of twenty said goodbye

My Jimmy said he'd sail across the sea
He swore an oath
He'd sail back one day and marry me.
My Jimmy said he'd sail across the sea

But my Jimmy let me down
And now they mock me in the town
Oh my Jimmy please come back to me
Oh my Jimmy please come back to me.

The dawn was dark upon the mountain rim
The day he left
I knew I bore the living child of him.
I knew I bore the living child of him

And that child is borne to me
My Jimmy's far across the sea
The dawn is dark on upon the mountain rim
Here I stand and wait for my love Jim.
