A few other verses are things like:

"And now my love has gone to France
to try his fortune for to advance
and if he come back tis but a chance
is go dteann tu, a mhuirnin, slan

(chorus) Siuil, siuil 7rl

I'll dye my petticoat a burning red
and round the world I'll earn my bread
Until my parents shall wish me dead
is go teann...

(If you put in "And now my love has gone to France" in the Search the Digital Tradition box on top right of this page, you might find all the words)
