Subject: Lyr Add: SPANISH LADY (Ni Dhomhnaill & Lunny)
From: spanishladdy
Date: 18 Oct 04 - 09:04 AM

I wrote down this lyric according to the words of people here:)

it's for "Maighread & Triona Ni Dhomhnaill & Donal Lunny / Spanish Lady"

please kindly help me to check if there is any wrong:)]

Spanish Lady

As I was a-walking through Dublin City,
about the hour of twelve at night
It was there i saw a fair pretty female,
Washing her feet by candlelight.
First she washed them and then she dried them,
Over a fire of amber coal
And in all my life I never did see a maid so neat about the sole

She had twenty eighteen sixteen fourteen
Twelve ten eight six four two none
She had nineteen seventeen fifteen thirteen
Eleven nine seven five three and one!

I stopped to look but the watchman passed
Says he, "Young fellow, the night is late
And along with you home or I will wrestle you
Straight away through the Bridewell gate"
I got a look from the Spanish lady
Hot as the fire of ambry coals
And in all my life I never did see
A maid so sweet about the soles


She had twenty eighteen sixteen fourteen
Twelve ten eight six four two none
She had nineteen seventeen fifteen thirteen
Eleven nine seven five three and one!

And as I came back through Dublin City
As the down of day was o'er
Who should I spy but the Spanish Lady
When I was weary and footsore
She had a heart so full of loving
And her love she longed to share
And in all me life I never did meet
A maid that had so much to share


She had twenty eighteen sixteen fourteen
Twelve ten eight six four two none
She had nineteen seventeen fifteen thirteen
Eleven nine seven five three and one!

I've wandered North and I've wandered South
From Stoneybatter to Patrick's Close
Up and around by the Gloucester Diamond
Back by Napper Tandy's house
Old age has laid her hands upon me
Cold as a fire of ashy coals
And gone is the lovely Spanish Lady
Neat and sweet about the soles

Round and around goes the wheel of fortune
Where it rests now wearies me
For fair young women are so deceiving
Sad experience teaches me.

She had twenty eighteen sixteen fourteen
Twelve ten eight six four two none
She had nineteen seventeen fifteen thirteen
Eleven nine seven five three and one!

If you type in spanish lady and do a search you'll get a bunch of threads, including one with loads of info. I was looking for the words a couple of years ago and people here were very helpful! Not only words but lots of alternative versions and lots of background.
