Cara Dillon sings "The Parting Glass"


"The Parting Glass"

Of all the money that e'er I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm I've ever done 
Alas it was to none but me 
And all I've done for want of wit 
To mem'ry now I can't recall 
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be to you all

[Chorus]
So fill to me the parting glass 
And drink a health whate’er befalls 
And gently rise and softly call 
Good night and joy be to you all 

Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay 
But since it fell unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not 
I gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

Fill to me the parting glass 
And drink a health whate’er befalls 
And gently rise and softly call 
Good night and joy be to you all 

La La

But since it fell unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

[Chorus]
