lyrics

THE PARTING GLASS – TRADITIONAL
[Intro]

F#m D A E


[Verse 1]

F#m D A E
Of all the money that e'er I had
F#m D A E
I've spent it in good company
F#m D A E
And all the harm that e'er I've done
F#m D Bm F#m
Alas it was to none but me
A D A E
And all I've done for want of wit
Bm A F#m A E
To memory now I can't recall
F#m D A E
So fill to me the parting glass
F#m D Bm F#m
Good night and joy be with you all


[Verse 2]

F#m D A E
Of all the comrades that e'er I had
F#m D A E
They are sorry for my going away
F#m D A E
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
F#m D Bm F#m
They would wish me one more day to stay
A D A E
But since it falls unto my lot
Bm A F#m A E
That I should rise and you should not
F#m D A E
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
F#m D Bm F#m
Good night and joy be with you all


[Verse 3]

F#m D A E
A man may drink and not be drunk
F#m D A E
A man may fight and not be slain
F#m D A E
A man may court a pretty girl
F#m D Bm F#m
And perhaps be welcomed back again
A D A E
But since it has so ordered been
Bm A F#m A E
By a time to rise and a time to fall
F#m D A E
Come fill to me the parting glass
F#m D A E
Goodnight and joy be with you all
F#m D Bm F#m
Goodnight and joy be with you all
