lyrics

A match was a-made, here last night,
To a girl I neither loved nor liked.
I should take my own advice.
I should just leave her behind, and go rovin’ the wide world over.

Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, or my head.
Would I be better off livin’? Would I be better off dead?
I’m always gonna remember all the things that she said,
Before my love crossed the ocean.

Oh I walked up, and I walked down,
And I walked to Cork and Dublin and Belfast towns.
But no equal to my true love did I find,
She’s the wee lass that’s left my heart broken.

Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, or my head.
Would I be better off livin’? Would I be better off dead?
I’m always gonna remember all the things that she said,
Before my love crossed the ocean.

Oh I got up two hours before day,
And I got a letter from my true love.
An’ I heard the black bird, and the linnet say,
That my love has crossed the Ocean.

Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, or my head.
Would I be better off livin’? Would I be better off dead?
I’m always gonna remember all the things that she said,
Before my love crossed the ocean.

Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, or my head.
Would I be better off livin’? Would I be better off dead?
I’m always gonna remember all the things that she said,
Before my love crossed the ocean.
