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.

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.
