I Wish I Was In England Lyrics

Oh I wish I was in England, in France or even in Spain
Or Wherever dwells my own true love to hold her near
again
Oh long time I had been roaming, in country and in town
But never in my wanderings met, a maid with such renown
No never in my wanderings met, a maid with such renown
Until I met my true love on the shores of Knocknashee
Her brown hair in the howling wind, a-blowing wild and
free
Her brown hair in the howling wind, a-blowing wild and
free
Oh my true love she did promise me some land with
rambling kine
And on her ample pasture land to build a mansion fine
And on her ample pasture land to build a mansion fine
But then my love she left me, and she wandered far away
And I've been searching for my love for many's the night
and day
Yes I've been searching for my love for many's the night
and day
Oh I wish that I was in England, or wherever she may be
That I could go and call my love, and together we would
be
That I could go and call my love and together we would be
