See As I Roved Out.  It's really just a simple love song, though people occasionally try to read too much into the final verse.

Thank you for the quick answer!
I heard the song in a radio broadcast on Irish patriotic movements: that's why I was misled.

Another question:
What could be the second reading of the last verse:

"A pint a night is my delight,
And a gallon in the morning;
The old women are my heartbreak
But the young ones my darling."?

That's from a completely different song that just happens to share a title with this one (as do quite a few others). Click on the link I provided above, which leads to the song you were looking for.
