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
