I am a rambling Irishman
In Ulster I was born in
And many happy hours I spent
On the banks of sweet Lough Erin
But to live poor I could not endure
As others of my station
To America I sailed away
And left this Irish nation

Ry tan tin-a-na, tan tin-a-na
Ry tan tin-a-noora nandy

The night before I went away
I spent it with my darling
3 o'clock in the afternoon
'Til the break of day next morning
But when that we were going to part
we linked each others arms
You maybe sure, and very sure
It wounded both our charms

Ry tan tin-a-na, tan tin-a-na
Ry tan tin-a-noora nandy

The very first night I slept on board
I dreamt about my Nancy
I dreamt I held her in my arms
And well she pleased my fancy
But when I woke out of my dream
I found my bed was empty
You maybe sure, and very sure
That I lay discontented

Ry tan tin-a-na, tan tin-a-na
Ry tan tin-a-noora nandy

When we arrived on the other side
We were both stout and healthy
We dropped our anchor in the bay
Going down to Philadelphia
So let every lass drink with her lad
In blue jacket and white trousers
And let every lad link with his lass
And take them as life spouses

Ry tan tin-a-na, tan tin-a-na
Ry tan tin-a-noora nandy...
