Oh the priest and the nun they went on the run
For the vows that they had taken
They had now forsaken
So they jumped a train and watched the pouring rain
As it fell from the sky, it fell from the sky

When they got to Dublin city
Oh the sights they were so pretty
And the sun it started shining
As he stared into her eyes

Oh my love, I promise you
Oh my love, I will be true

Back in Ballina the word was spreadin’ fast
The tongues they were waggin’
And the first stone it was cast
A parish up in arms
The bishop came to say
I’m sorry for your troubles, but I must be on my way

When they go to Dublin city
Oh the sights they were so pretty
And the sun it started shining
As he stared into her eyes

Oh my love, I promise you
Oh my love, I will be true

As the years rolled by, their love it didn’t die
No their love it grew and grew
Not a sole had had a clue
That the priest and the nun
That went on the run
Had lived a life of sin
Had lived a life of sin

When they go to Dublin city
Oh the sights they were so pretty
And the sun it started shining
As he stared into her eyes

Oh my love, I promise you
Oh my love, I will be true
