Back to Long time I courted you Miss


LONG TIME I COURTED YOU, MISS. Irish, Air (4/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC. "Air and one verse of song given from memory, as I heard them in early life at home" (Joyce).

Long time I courted you, Miss,
But now I've come from sea,
We'll make no more ado, Miss,
But quickly married be.
Long time you courted Sally-
With false vows you filled her head,
And Susan in the valley,
You promised her you'd wed.

Cho:
And sing oh, the storm is now gone down,
The ship is in the bay;
The captain and the sailors all
Are roving far away.
