One starry night as I lay sleepin'
One starry night as I lay in bed
Dreamed I heard wagon wheels a'creakin'
When I awoke, love, found you had fled

I'll search the highways, likewise the byways
I'll search the boreens, the camping places too
I will inquire of all our people
Have they tide or tidings or sight of you

For it's many's the mile, love, with you I've traveled
Many's the hour, love, with you I've spent
Dreamed you were my love forever
But now I find, love, you were only lent

I'll go across the seas to England
To London or to Birmingham
And in some public house I'll find you
Lamenting your lost love back home

I'm drunk today, I'm seldom sober
A handsome rover from town to town
When I am dead, my story ended
Molly Bán a stoirín, come lay me down

One starry night as I lay sleepin'
One starry night as I lay in bed
Dreamed I heard wagon wheels a'creakin'
Now that you're gone, love, I might as well be dead
