Embolus Spancil Hill Lyrics

Embolus - Spancil Hill

Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by
Me mind been bent on rambling to Ireland I did fly
I stepped on board a vision and followed with a will
Til next I came to anchor at the cross in Spancil Hill

It being on the 23rd of June the day before the fair
When Irelands sons and daughters and friends a__embled there
The young, the old, the brave and the bold came their duties to fulfill
At the parish church in Clooney, a mile from Spancil Hill

I went to see me neighbours to see what they might say
The old ones they were all dead and gone, the young ones turning grey
But I met the tailor Quigley, he's as bold as ever still
Ah, he used to make me britches when I lived at Spancil Hill


I paid a flying visit to my first and only love
She's as fair as any lily as gentle as a dove
And she threw her arms around me, saying Johnny I love you still
Ah, she's now a farmer's daughter and the pride of Spancil Hill

I dreamt I knelt and kissed her as in the days of yore
Ah, Johnny you're only joking as many the time before
Then the c___ he crew in the morning, crew both loud and shrill
I awoke in California, many miles from Spancil Hill
