Is my team ploughingA
That I was used to driveB
And hear the harness jingleC
When I was man aliveB
-
Ay the horses trampleC
The harness jingles nowD
No change though you lie underE
The land you used to ploughD
-
Is football playingA
Along the river shoreF
With lads to chase the leatherE
Now I stand up no moreF
-
Ay the ball is flyingA
The lads play heart and soulG
The goal stands up the keeperE
Stands up to keep the goalG
-
Is my girl happyH
That I thought hard to leaveI
And has she tired of weepingA
As she lies down at eveI
-
Ay she lies down lightlyH
She lies not down to weepJ
Your girl is well contentedK
Be still my lad and sleepJ
-
Is my friend heartyH
Now I am thin and pineL
And has he found to sleep inM
A better bed than mineL
-
Yes lad I lie easyH
I lie as lads would chooseN
I cheer a dead man's sweetheartO
Never ask me whoseN
