GUEST,Alan Lyr Req: One Starry Night (D Spillane & S Tyrrell) (23) RE: Lyr Req: One Starry Night (D Spillane & S Tyrrell) 07 Aug 10


As recorded by Spillane and Tyrrell "Among the Stones'
Quintuple checked:

One starry night as I lay sleeping,
One starry night, as I lay in bed;
I dreamed I heard wagon wheels a-creaking.
When I awoke, my own love had fled.

I've searched the highways, likewise the byways
I searched the bohreens, the camping places too.
I will enquire all of our people
Have they tide or tidings or signs of you?

It's many the mile love, with you I've travelled
Many the hour, love, with you I've spent.
I dreamed you were my love forever,
But now I find, love, you were only lent.

I'm drunk today, but oft times I'm sober,
A constant rover from town to town;
When I'm dead and my sorrows ended,
Molly Bawn a stoírín, come and lay me down.

For it's many the mile love, with you I've travelled
Many the hour, love, with you I've spent
I dreamed you were my love forever
But now I find, love, you were only lent.


cheers
