Black waterside

I finally got 'round to learning this on the guitar, but I'm having some difficulties working out the lyrics. Anybody know them?

In the DigiTrad under Blackwaterside is the traditional version, I think it's the same as Bert Jansch sang.

Hi!

Here's the Jansch's version of "Blackwaterside".

Please, help me with lyrics of the CD "When the circus comes to town"
(see other threat).

Marco B.

BLACKWATER SIDE

One morning fair I took he air
Down by blackwater side
'twas gazing all al around me
The Irish lad I spied

All through the fore part of the night
We lay in sport and play
Till this young man arose and gathered his clothes
Saying 'Fare thee well today

That's not the promise that you gave to me
When first you lay on my breast
You could make me believe with your lying tongue
That the sun rose in the West

Well then go home to your father's garden
Go home and weep your fill
And think on your own misfortune
That you 've brought with your want and will.

I always thought the last words were 'wanton will'?

these are the lyrics Liam Clancy and Altan have recorded, which I referred to in another thread. As I learned it, from Liam, it's 'the Irish girl I spied'; the convention for a male singer who is about to tell a woman's story.
