Tears For Beers

Tears For Beers - As I Roved Out

And who are you, me pretty fair maid

And who are you, me honey?

And who are you, me pretty fair maid

And who are you, me honey?

She answered me quite modestly,

"I am me mother's darling."

Cho: With me too-ry-ay

Fol-de-diddle-day

Di-re fol-de-diddle

Dai-rie oh.

And will you come to me mother's house,

When the sun is shining clearly ( repeat )

I'll open the door and I'll let you in

And divil 'o one would hear us.

So I went to her house in the middle of the night

When the moon was shining clearly ( repeat )

Shc opened the door and she let me in

And divil the one did hear us.

So I went to her house in the middle of the night

When the moon was shining clearly ( repeat )

Shc opened the door and she let me in

And divil the one did hear us.

She took me horse by the bridle and the bit

And she led him to the stable ( repeat )

Saying "There's plenty of oats for a soldier's horse,

To eat it if he's able."

Then she took me by the lily-white hand

And she led me to the table ( repeat )

Saying "There's plenty of wine for a soldier boy,

To drink it if you're able."

Then I got up and made the bed

And I made it nice and aisy ( repeat )

Then I got up and laid her down

Saying "Lassie, are you able?"

And there we lay till the break of day

And divil a one did hear us ( repeat )

Then I arose and put on me clothes

Saying "Lassie, I must leave you."

And when will you return again

And when will we get married ( repeat )

When broken shells make Christmas bells

We might well get married.
