TS Tune Req: The 'Other' 'Parting Glass' (29) RE: Tune Req: The 'Other' 'Parting Glass' 23 Nov 04


Dont' forget the version of which Bob Bolton wrote in a previous thread.."The PArting Glass" as recorded by the Chieftains, and also Newfoundland trad. band "Fine Crowd"

"The Parting Glass"

Kind friends and companions come join me in rhyme
Come lift up your voices in chorus with mine
Come lift up your voices all grief to refrain
For we may or might never all meet here again.

CH: So here's a health to our Company and one to my Lass
    Let's drink and be merry all out of one glass
    Let's drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
    For we may or might never all meet here again.

Here's a health to the wee Lass that I love so well
Her smile and her beauty; there's none can excell
There's a smile on her countanence as she sits upon my knee
There's no man in this wide world as happy as me.

Chorus

Our ship lies at anchor; She's ready to dock
I wish her safe bondage without any shock
And if ever we shall meet you by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me.

Chorus
