Johnjoe Fitzpatrick: 5th Anniversary

5th Anniversary
Johnjoe Fitzpatrick,
Castlecomer, County Kilkenny

Of all the money that e’er I had, I spent it in good company
For all I’ve done for want of wit, to memory now I can’t recall
So fill to me the parting glass, good night and joy be with you all
Of all the comrades that e’er I’ve had, they are sorry for my going away
And of all the love that e’er I’ve had, she would 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 softly call, good night and joy be with you all.
Good night Johnjoe from your partner Kathleen and nephew Pa. xxx
