AnneMC Rollicking songs for girls.. (32) Lyr Add: ON WE GO (Nancy McCallion) 12 Oct 10


This is a great rollicking song - sounds good with a bodhran player in your group.

ON WE GO
(Nancy McCallion)

This song was also on Putamayo's "Women of the World: Celtic" CD, Volume 1.

There was an old woman and there was an old man
They live upon the high road
He once sat as a jockey for his pay
And she was her mother's darling-o

CHORUS: And on we go, and on we go
Can you recall the day we married-o
On we go, and on we go
Wouldn't you be frightened to die alone
Come a little closer to me darling-o

Come with me you silly old man
Cozy as a codfish-o
I've never seen anyone sour as you
at least not after breakfast-o
She grabbed the old man by the hand
She lead him 'cross a moonlit night
She took him to the public house
And filled him full of whiskey-o. CHORUS

And on the way back home from town
Oh, oh my darlin'-o
She pushed him in the water and she held him down
Can you recall the day we married-o. CHORUS

There was an old woman and there was an old man
They lived upon the highroad
He once sat as a jockey for his pay...
And she was her mother's darlin'-o
