Goodbye Muirsheen Durkin

Lyrics

So goodbye Muirsheen Durkin I’m sick and tired of working
No more I’ll dig the praties, no longer I’ll be poor
As sure as me name is Carney; I’ll go off to California
Where instead of diggin’ praties; I’ll be diggin’ lumps of gold

Goodbye to all the boys at home, I’m sailing far across the foam
To try and make me fortune in far Amerikay
There’s gold and money plenty for the poor and for the gentry;
And when I come back again I never more will stray

So goodbye Muirsheen Durkin I’m sick and tired of working
No more I’ll dig the praties, no longer I’ll be poor
As sure as me name is Carney; I’ll go off to California
Where instead of diggin’ praties; I’ll be diggin’ lumps of gold
