Irish Song Lyrics - Jock Stewart

Now, my name is Jock Stewart I'm a canny gaun man,
And a roving young fellow, I've been.
So be easy and free When you're drinkin wi' me.
I'm a man you don't meet every day.
I have acres of land; I have men at command;
(And) I have always a shilling to spare. (And many )

Now, I took out my gun, With my dog I did shoot,
All down by the River Kildare (banks of the Try)
I'm a piper by trade And a roving young blade
And many a tune I do play

Let us catch well the hours And the minutes that fly
And we'll share them together this day

So, come fill up your glasses
Of brandy and wine,
And whatever the cost, I will pay
