The Roving Journeyman Oh, when I arrived at Carlow the girls all jumped for joy; Said one unto the other, "Here comes a sporting boy! " One treats me to a bottle and the other to a glass (can?) And the toast goes round the table, "Here's a health to the journeyman!" Said the mother to the daughter, "I think it very strange That you should leave your native home with a journeyman to range," "Oh hold your tongue, dear mother, and say the least you can, For it's round the country I will go with my roving journeyman." From Folksongs from southern New Brunswick, Creighton RG apr97
