2) I Will Love You All My Life Version by Foster and Allen

I will love you all my life
That's what I'll do
I'll be right beside you all the way
I would never leave you, darlin'
And I'll always want you to stay

I will love you all my life
With all my heart
I'll be loving you, darlin'
Right from the start
And I promise you, darlin'
I'll always be true
I will love you all my life

3) Maggie

I wandered today to the hill, Maggie,
To watch the scene below,
The creek and the rusty old mill, Maggie,
Where we sat in the long, long ago.
The green grove has gone from the hill, Maggie,
Where first the daisies sprung;
The creaking old mill is still, Maggie,
Since you and I were young.

4) Red Is the Rose

Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows,
Fair is the lily of the valley,
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne,
But my love is fairer than any.

Come over the hills, my bonnie Irish lass,
Come over the hills to your darling,
You choose the road, love, and I'll make the vow,
And I'll be your true love forever.

5) The Fields of Athenry

By a lonely prison wall,
I heard a young girl calling,
"Michael, they have taken you away,
For you stole Trevelyan's corn,
So the young might see the morn.
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay."

Low lie the fields of Athenry,
Where once we watched the small free birds fly.
Our love was on the wing,
We had dreams and songs to sing,
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry.

6) The Mountains of Mourne

Oh, Mary, this London's a wonderful sight,
With the people here workin' by day and by night.
They don't sow potatoes, nor barley, nor wheat,
But there's gangs of them diggin' for gold in the street.
At least when I asked them, that's what I was told,
So I just took a hand at this diggin' for gold.
But for all that I've found there, I might as well be
Where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea.

7) The Wild Rover

I've been a wild rover for many a year,
And I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer,
But now I'm returning with gold in great store,
And I never will play the wild rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never,
No, nay, never, no more,
Will I play the wild rover,
No, never, no more.

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent,
And I told the landlady my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she answered me, "Nay,
Such a custom as yours I could have any day."
