GUEST,Dave F Lyr Req: One Starry Night (D Spillane/S Tyrrell) (8) Lyr Add: ONE STARRY NIGHT (D Spillane/S Tyrrell) 01 Feb 04

You only have to ask - try if there's anything you can't decipher

One starry night as I lay sleeping
One starry night as I lay in bed
I dreamed I heard wagon wheels a-creakin
When I awoke my own love had fled

And it's many a mile with you I've travelled
Many's the hour love with you I've spent
I dreamed you were my love for ever
But now I find love that you were only lent

I'll search the highways and I'll search the byways
I'll search the boureens the camping places too
I will enquire of all our people
Have they tide or tidings or a sight of you

Oft times I'm drunk tonight I'm sober
A constant rover from town to town
And when I'm dead and my travelling's over
Molly Bawn a-storeean come lay me down

That's what I sing anyway but if you go back to the original you
may find that Sean sings slightly different words - he tells me that although it is credited to him it is in fact a traditional traveller's song
