One Starry Night

One starry night as I lay sleeping,
One starry night, as I lay in bed;
I dreamed I heard wagon wheels a-creaking.
When I awoke, my own love had fled.
I’ve searched the highways, likewise the byways
I searched the bohreens, the camping places too.
I will enquire all of our people
Have they tide or tidings or signs of you?

 It’s many the mile love, with you I’ve travelled 
Many the hour, love, with you I’ve spent.
I dreamed you were my love forever,
But now I find, love, you were only lent.

I’m drunk today, but oft times I’m sober,
A constant rover from town to town;
When I’m dead and my sorrows ended,
Molly Bawn a stoírín, come and lay me down.

 For it’s many the mile love, with you I’ve travelled

Many the hour, love, with you I’ve spent 
I dreamed you were my love forever 
But now I find, love, you were only lent.

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
