Spancil Hill

 
 
     Am G  
Last night as I lay dreaming, 
                      Am 
of pleasant days gone by,
Am            
 
Me mind being bent on rambling, 
   C G 
to Ireland I did fly,
  Am
 
I stepped on board a vision, 
    C G 
and followed with a will,
     Am G
 
Till the first I came to anchor 
                        Am 
at the cross at Spancil Hill 
 
2. T'was 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 the bold,
 
their duty to full fill,
At the parish Church near Clooney,
 
a mile from Spancil Hill. 
 
3. Delighted by the novelty, 
enchanted by the scene.
Where in me early boyhood
 
where often I had been.
I thought I heard a murmur.
 
I think I hear it still.
It's the little stream of water
 
that flows down Spancil Hill. 
 
4. To amuse a passing fancy, 
I laid down on the ground.
And all my school companions,
 
they shortly gathered round.
When we were home returning,
 
we danced with bright good will
To Martin Monahan's music,
 
at the cross at Spancil Hill. 
 
5. I went to see me neighbours 
to see what they might say,
The old one's were all dead and gone,
 
the young one's turning grey,
I met with tailor Quigley,
 
he's as bold as ever still,
Sure he used to make me britches
 
when I lived in Spancil Hill. 
 
6. I paid a flying visit 
to my first and only love,
She's as fair as any lilly
 
as gently as a dove,
She threw her arms around me
 
saying Johnny I love ye still, 
She was Meg the farmer's daughter, 
the pride of Spaincil Hill. 
 
7. I dreamt I knelt and kissed her 
as in the days of yore
Ah, Johnny you're only joking
 
as many the time be- fore
Then the cock he crew in the morning,
 
he crew both loud and shrill
I awoke in California,
 
many miles from Spancil Hill
