Joy Be With You All

The Wailin' Jennys singing a traditional Irish tune:

Oh, all the money e'er I spent,
I spent it in good company.
And all the harm that e'er I 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 comrades that e'er I've had,
They're sorry for my going away,
And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had,
They'd 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 I'll softly call,
Good night and joy be with you all.
