Come With Me Over the Mountain

Irish Song Lyrics - Come With Me Over the Mountain

One night when the bright moon
was alumined in the sky
when I first took the notion to marry
I put on my hat and away I did high
you might think I was in a great hurry

When I came to a place where I often had been
Oh my heart gave a leap when my darlin'
I seen I opened the door
and I bid her good night saying
will you come over the mountain?

Oh what a sort of a foot has got into your head
I am glad for to meet you so merry
it's now 12 o'clock when you should be in bed
just speak low or you'll waken me Mammy

If you think I am jesting my jesting is true
I have courted 12 month, faith I think
it should do and before I do go I'll be married to you
If you'll come with me over the mountain

If I was to make an elopement with you
it might well be attended with danger
the country would sensure and tattle us
to all my friends would all frown and no wonder

well now just let them sensure and tattle away
consult with yourself for it's very near day
and I don't give a pin what the whole of them say
if once you have over the mountain

Now I am resolved now at home for to stay
I think it more fitting and better
then herd you well darlin I must now away
and so that puts an end to the matter

oh stop, stop for a moment till I get my shoes
Oh me heart gave a leap when I heard the good news
She ran to the door saying maybe I'll choose
to elope with you over the mountain

By this time the moon had gone down in the west
and the morning star brightly was shining
we both made our way with the greatest of haste
for the wedding our two hearts were pining

and the servent came to us without more delay
sure he married us both on the very same day
and often we chat when we've little to say
of the trip we took over the mountain
