The Parting Glass

Traditional Irish Song

Oh all the time that e'er I spent,
I spent it in good company;
And any harm that e'er I've done,
I trust it was to none but me;
May those I've loved through all the years
Have memories now they'll e'er recall.
So fill to me the parting glass,

Goodnight and joy be with you all.
Of all the comrades that e'er I had
Are sorry for my going away;
And all the loved ones that e'er I had
Would wish me one more day to stay,
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should leave and you should not
I'Il gently rise and I'll softly call
Goodnight and joy be with you all.
Of all good times that e'er we shared,
I leave to you fond memory,
And for all the friendship that e'er we had
I ask you to remember me;
And when you sit and stories tell,
I'Il be with you and help recall.
So fill to me the parting glass,
God bless and joy be with you all.
