The Makem & Spain Brothers: The Tradition Continues
Back to song list


My store of gold had long been spent, my treasures peddled for the gin
And all my debts from long ago have all come back again
But of all my time and memory that I can now recall
There's not a thing that I have done that I would change at all

Oh, all the time I'd saved away has left me now and gone
And all my youth is in decay, it's time to move along
I had my share of good times then, with girls from all around the town
Now all the girls, they pass me by, I've come to lay me down
