Ed Sheeran – Parting Glass lyrics

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

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

A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again
But since it has so ought to be
By a time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
Good night and joy be with you all

    This song is not by Sheeran, but is normally credited as a traditional Irish song (see Wikipedia entry). Bob Dylan also recorded a re-working of it entitled "Restless Farewell", almost equally faithful to the tune as Sheeran's version is. A lovely melody, but not this artist's own. There's nothing wrong with covers - please credit them accurately, however.
