Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Gentleman Soldier (from Dubliners)
Subject: Gentleman Soldier?
Does anyone out there have the lyrics to a song called "Gentleman Soldier" or "The Gentleman Soldier"? I once heard it performed ... oh about 5 years ago ... and remember liking it very much. Unfortunately, I can't remember much of the lyrics.

The one bit of lyrics that I do remember goes something like this:

"Oh, you gentleman soldier, won't you marry me?"
"But I'm married already, with bairns of my own, I've
been told they number three"

or something like that; it's been a while, and I had a few that evening.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yr obt svt,

J.M. Varty
