The Milford Girl

The Milford Girl

 

I had a lotta money till I went to town/Said I had a lotta money till I went to town/Had a lotta money till I went to town/Now all that money’s gone

 

I spent it on the gambling and the rambling round/Spent it on the gambling and the rambling round / Spent it on the gambling and the rambling round /Now all that money’s gone

 

And I blew it on the licquor and a Milford girl/Blew it on the licquor and a Milford girl/Blew it on the licquor and a Milford girl/Now the Milford girl is gone

 

But you won’t find me hangin around with a lover’s tear and my head hung down/No you won’t find me hangin around now the Milford girl is gone

 

She left me for a gypsy who could sing the blues / Left me for a gypsy who could sing the blues/ Left me for a gypsy who could sing the blues/Now the gypsy boy is gone

 

I dragged him to the river and I dropped him in/Dragged him to the river and I dropped him in/Dragged him to the river and I dropped him in/Now he don’t sing no more

 

But you won’t find me hangin around with a lover’s tear and my head hung down/No you won’t find me hangin around now the gypsy boy is gone

 

Well they caught me celebratin down in James McDaid’s / Caught me celebratin down in James McDaid’s/ Caught me celebratin down in James McDaid’s/And they put the handcuffs on

 

Now they say they’re gonna hang me in Ramelton Square/ Say they’re gonna hang me in Ramelton Square/ Say they’re gonna hang me in Ramelton Square/Until they’re sure I’m gone

 

But you won’t find me hangin around with a lover’s tear and my head hung down/No you won’t find me hangin around/ Before the morning I’ll be long gone
