I Know My Love
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)
I know my love by his way of walking
And I know my love by his way of talking
And I know my love in his suit of blue
And if my love leaves me, what will I do?
And still she cried, "I love him the best
And a troubled mind sure can know no rest"
And still she cried, "Bonny boys are few
And if my love leaves me, what will I do?"
There is a dance house in Mardyke
And there my true love goes every night
He takes a strange girl upon his knee
Well, now don't you know that it vexes me?
If my love knew, I can wash and wring
If my love knew, I can weave and spin
I'd make a suit of the finest kind
But the want of money leaves me behind
I know my love is an errant rover
And I know he'll travel the world all over
And in dear old Ireland he'll no longer tarry
And an English damsel he's sure to marry.
