Lyrics Spancil Hill

Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by
Me mind being bent on rambling to Ireland I did fly
I stepped on board a vision and I followed with a will
'Till next I came to anchor at the cross at Spancil Hill
It being on the twenty-third of June the day before the fair
When Ireland's sons and daughters and friends assembled there
The young the old the brave and the bold came their duty to fulfill
At the parish church in Clooney a mile from Spancil Hill
I went to see me neighbors to see what they might say
The old ones were all dead and gone the young ones turning gray
But I met the tailor Quigley he's as bold as ever still
Ah he used to mend me britches
When I lived in Spancil Hill
I paid a flying visit to my first and only love
She's as white as any lily gentle as a dove
And she threw her arms around me saying
Johnny I love you still
As she's Nell the farmer's daughter and the pride of Spancil Hill
I dreamed I held and kissed her as in the days of yore
Ah Johnny you're only jokin' as many's the time before
Then the cock he crew in the morning he crew both loud and shrill
I awoke in California many miles from Spancil Hill
