The Chieftains

"The Lowlands Of Holland"

[Verse:]
On the night that i was married and upon my marriage bed
There up came a bold sea captain
And he stood at my bed head
Saying, “arise, arise young wedded man and come along with me
To the lowlands of holland to fight the enemy”
Now then holland is a lovely land
And upon it, grows fine grain
Sure it is a place of residence for a soldier to remain
Where the sugarcane is plentiful
And the tea grows on each tree
Well i never had but the one sweetheart
And now he’s gone far away from me
I will wear no stays around my waist
No combs, all in my hair
I will wear no scarf around my neck
For to save my beauty fair
And never will i marry, not until the day i die
Since these four winds and stormy seas
Came between my love and i
Said the mother to the daughter
“Give up your soul’s lament sure there’s men
Enough in galway for to be your heart’s content”
Sure there’s men enough in galway
But alas, there’s none for me
Since the lowlands of holland
Stole away my love from me
