Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG
Me mind being bent on rambling to Ireland I did fly
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG
I stepped on board a vision and I followed with the wind
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
And I shortly came to anchor at the cross of Spancil Hill

It was on the 3rd of June the day before the fair
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG
When Ireland's sons and daughters were all assembled there
Am chordAm C chordC G chordG
The young the old the brave the bold their duty to fulfill
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm Am chordAm
At the little church in Cluney a mile from Spancil Hill


I went to see me neighbors to see what they would say
The old ones they were dead and gone the young ones turning grey
I met with tailor Quigley he's as bold as ever still
Sure he used to make me britches when I lived in Spancil Hill


I paid a flying visit to me first and only love
She is fair as any lily and gentle as a dove
She threw her arms around me saying Johnny I love you still
Oh she's Mick the ranger's daughter and the pride of Spancil Hill


I dreamt I held and kissed her as in the days of yore
She said Johnny you're only joking as many's the time before
The cock crew in the morning he crew both loud and shrill
And I awoke in California many miles from Spancil Hill

G chordG, Em chordEm, Am chordAm
