Musical Guest: The Wailin' Jennys

Sweetly exquisite. I created a music playlist for my wake/funeral/life celebration -- don't worry, it's not scheduled for a long time to come -- and this is the final song.


The Parting Glass





Lyrics:

Oh all the money that e'er I spent
I spent it in good company
And all the harm that e'er I've done
Alas, it was to none but me 

And 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

Oh all the comrades that e'er I've had
Are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had
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 I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all
