"Parting Glass" as written by and Mark Jeremy Seymour....
Oh, all the money that e'er I spent
I spent it in good company
And all the harm that e'er I've done
Alas, it was to none but me

And all I've done for want of wit
To mem'ry now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night, and joy be with you all

Oh all the money that I could have
And leisure time to sit a while
There is a fair maid in this town
Who solely has my heart beguiled

Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips
I alone she has my heart enthrall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night, and joy be with you all

Oh, all the friends that e'er I had
Were sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that I could have had
Would wish me one more day to stay

But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
"Good night, and joy be with you all."

I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
"Good night, and joy be with you all."
