It was sung by the wonderful, late Eddie Butcher who surely should have his own statue in the middle of Magilligan by now!
It's a night-visit song where the boy obtains the girl through a bit of blackmail! When a man's in love he knows no cold Like me not long ago. To see his girl like a hero bold, He'll plough through frost and snow. The moon she'd gently shed her light Along me weary way, Until I came to that sweet place Where all my treasure lay. When a man's in love he feels no cold, Like me not long ago, Like a hero bold, to see his girl, He'll plough through frost and snow.
The moon she gently shed her light Along my dreary way, Until I came to that sweet spot Where all my treasure lay. Her breath was sweet, her hands was neat, Her tongue did gently glide, As I gave her a kiss and I surely didn't miss And I asked to be my bride. Her hand was soft and her breath was sweet, Her tongue did gently glide, I stole a kiss, it was no miss, And I asked her to be my bride. Take me to your bedroom, dear, To rest my weary head. You never once said you'd be my bride So now my love be still.
Tomorrow I am going to cross the sea To far Newfoundland shore, And you will never, never see Your faithful lover no more. Tonight our courtship is at an end Between my love and me, So fare you well, my favourite girl, A long farewell to thee. Whatever shall I do? I'll break every bond of love, My darling to please you. Perhaps my parents may forgive Or surely may forget, But I'm resolved this very hour To take you to my bed.
