Rambling Irishman I am a rambling Irishman, In Ulster I was born. And many's the pleasant days I've spent Round the shores of sweet Loch Erne But to be poor I could not endure Like others of my station. To Amerikay I sailed away And left this Irish nation. cho: Right rantin-de-na, dantin-de-na, Right antin-de-na, in-en-andy Right rantin-de-na, dantin-de-na, Right antin-de-na, in-en-andy The night before I went away, I spent it with my darling. Three o'clock in the afternoon Till the break of day next morning But when that we were going to part We lay in each other's arms. To Amerikay we soon set sail, A journey without no charms. And when we reached the other side We were both stout and healthy We dropped the anchor in the bay Going down to Philadelphi-ay So let every lass drink to her lad In blue jacket and white trousers And let every lad drink to his lass And take them as life spouses.
