Rosanne Cash – The Parting Glass lyrics
[Verse 1]
Of all the money e'er I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm I've ever did
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

[Verse 2]
If I had money enough to spend
And leisure time to sit awhile
There is fair maid in this town
That surely has my heart beguiled
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips
I own she has my heart enthralled
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

[Verse 3]
Oh, all the comrades e'er I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts e'er I had
They 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 with you all
Good night and joy be with you all
