Paddy’s Lament – Sinead O’Connor

13 12 2009

Well it’s by the hush, me boys, and sure that’s to hold your noise,
And listen to poor Paddy’s sad narration:
I was by hunger stressed, and in poverty distressed,
So I took a thought I’d leave the Irish nation.

Well I sold me ass and cow, my little pigs and sow,
My little plot of land I soon did part with,
And me sweetheart Bid McGee, I’m afraid I’ll never see,
For I left her there that morning broken-hearted.

Here’s you boys, now take my advice:
To America I’ll have ye’s not be going.
There is nothing here but war, where the murderin’ cannons roar,
And I wish I was at home in dear old Dublin.

Well meself and a hundred more, to America sailed o’er,
Our fortunes to be making we were thinkin’.
When we got to Yankee land, they put guns into our hands,
“Paddy, you must go and fight for Lincoln”.

Here’s you boys, now take my advice:
To America I’ll have ye’s not be going.
There is nothing here but war, where the murderin’ cannons roar,
And I wish I was at home in dear old Dublin.

General Meagher to us he said, if you get shot or lose your head,
Every murdered soul of youse will get a pension.
Well in the war lost me leg, they gave me a wooden peg,
And by soul it is the truth to you I mention.

Here’s you boys, now take my advice:
To America I’ll have ye’s not be going.
There is nothing here but war, where the murderin’ cannons roar,
And I wish I was at home in dear old Dublin.

Well I think meself in luck, if I get fed on Indianbuck
And old Ireland is the country I delight in
To the devil, I would say, it’s curse Americay
For the truth I’ve had enough of your hard fightin’

Here’s you boys, now take my advice
To America I’ll have ye’s not be going
There is nothing here but war, where the murderin’ cannons roar,
And I wish I was at home in dear old Dublin.
I wish I was at home,
I wish I was at home,
I wish I was at home in dear old Dublin.
