Ed Sheeran - Nancy Mulligan lyrics

[Verse 1] I was twenty-four years old When I met the woman I would call my own Twenty-two grand kids now growing old In that house that your brother bought ya Oh the summer day when I proposed I made that wedding ring from dentist gold And I asked her father, but her daddy said, “No You can’t marry my daughter” [Chorus] She and I went on the run Don’t care about religion I’m gonna marry the woman I love Down by the Wexford border She was Nancy Mulligan And I was William Sheeran She took my name and then we were one Down by the Wexford border [Verse 3] Well, met her at Guy’s in the second world war And she was working on a soldier’s ward Never had I seen such beauty before The moment that I saw her Nancy was my yellow rose And we got married wearing borrowed clothes We got eight children now growing old Five sons and three daughters [Chorus] She and I went on the run Don’t care about religion I’m gonna marry the woman I love Down by the Wexford border She was Nancy Mulligan And I was William Sheeran She took my name and then we were one Down by the Wexford border [Verse 3] From her snow white streak in her jet black hair Over sixteen years I’ve been loving her Now we’re sat by the fire in our old armchairs You know Nancy, I adore ya From a farm boy born near Belfast town I never worried about the king and crown ‘Cause I found my heart upon the southern ground There’s no difference, I ensure ya [Chorus] She and I went on the run Don’t care about religion I’m gonna marry the woman I love Down by the Wexford border She was Nancy Mulligan And I was William Sheeran She took my name and then we were one Down by the Wexford border
