Dubliners - Banks Of The Roses lyrics

On the banks of the roses me love and I sat down
And I took out me fiddle for to play me love a tune
And in the middle of the tune oh she sighed
And she said 'ar Johnny, lovely Johnny, don't ya leave me
When I was a young man, I heard me father say
That he'd rather see me dead and buried in the clay
Sooner than be married to any runaway
By the lovely sweet banks of the roses
[Lyrics from: https:/]
And then I am no runaway and soon I'll let them know
That I can take the bottle or can leave it alone
And if her daddy doesn't like it
He can keep his daughter at home
And young Johnny will go rovin' with another
And when I get married 'twill be in the month of May
When the leaves they are green and the meadows they are gay
And me and me true love we'll sit and sport and play
By the lovely sweet banks of the roses
