On We Go
Traditional

There was an old woman and there was an old man
They lived upon the high road
He once sat as a jockey for his pay
And she was her mother’s darlin’-o

Chorus:

And on we go, on we go
Can you recall the day we married-o
On we go, on we go
Wouldn’t you be frightened to die alone?
Come a little closer to me darlin’-o
Come a little closer to me darlin’-o
Come a little closer to me darlin’-o

“Come with me you sillly old man
Cozy as a cod fish-o
I never seen anyone sour as you
At least not after breakfast-o”
She grabbed the old man by the hand
She lead him cross a moonlit night
She took him to the public house
And filled him full of whiskey-o

Chorus

And on the way back home from town
Oh-oh m’darlin’-o
She pushed him in the water and she held him down
“Can you recall the day we married-o?”

Chorus

They lived upon the high road ....
....
He once sat as a jockey for his pay ....
And she was her mother’s darlin’-o
