 Am                 G                    Em       Am
Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by.
Am                                C             G
My mind being bent on rambling to Ireland I did fly.
Am                                 C                G
I stepped on board a vision and I followed with the wind.
   Am                 G                        Em     Am
And I shortly came to anchor at the cross of Spancil Hill.
   Am           G                Em         Am
It was  on the 23rd June the day before the fair.
Am                                    C                 G
When lreland's sons and daughters and friends assembled there.
   Am                                         C                   G
The young and the old, the brave and the bold came their duty to fulfill.
         Am               G                    Em      Am
At the parish church in Cluney many miles from Spancil Hill

I went to see my neighbors to see what they would say.
The old ones were all dead and gone and the young one's turning grey.
I met with tailor Quigley, he's as bould as ever stilll.
Sure he used to mend me britches when I lived in Spancil Hill.

I paid the fly and visit to my first and only love.
She's as fair as any lily and as gentle as a dove.
She threw her arms around me saying "Johnny I love you still "
She was megs the farmers 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.
