Lyrics

My love is a dark-eyed man from Derry
I met him one night on a southbound ferry
His love for me is fierce and it is true
But I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you
He shares that love with two;

I keep him up all day with kissing,
The bottle keeps him up all day with drinking,
So he never gets to feeling alone
He never knows, how the time might slow,
When you’re waiting at home;

He says we’re going to leave the city,
Get a house in the wood some place pretty,
Sit by the fire till we grow old,
He’ll keep me from the hunger and the cold,
There’s no other hand he cares to hold.

I keep him up all day with kissing,
The bottle keeps him up all day with drinking,
So he never gets to feeling alone,
He never knows, how the time might slow,
When you’re waiting at home;

You might say that I’m crazy,
Loving him the way that I do,
But if you ever slept in his arms,
You’d stick around, too,
Yes, that’s just what you’d do;

One day I’m going to go out walking
Climb right up to the top of the mountain
Throw the bottle in the lake and watch it sink down
Oh, but I know my man,
He’d fetch that bottle, even if he drowned.

I keep him up all day with kissing,
The bottle keeps him up all day with drinking,
So he never gets to feeling alone
He never knows, how the time might slow,
When you’re waiting at home.
