W: W:Chorus: W:Goodbye Muirsheen Durkin, I'm sick and tired of working, W:No more I'll dig the praties, and no longer I'll be fooled, W:As sure's me name is Carney, I'll be off to California, W:Where instead of diggin' praties, I'll be diggin' lumps of gold. W: W:I've courted girls in Blarney, in Kanturk and in Killarney, W:In Passage and in Queenstown, that is the Cobh of Cork, W:Goodbye to all this pleasure, I'll be off to take me leisure, W:And the next time that you hear from me, will be a letter from New York. W: W:Chorus W: W:Goodbye to the girls at home I'm going far across the foam, W:To try and make me fortune in far Amerikay, W:There's gold and jewels and plenty, for the poor and for the gentry, W:And when I return again I never more will say. W: W:Chorus
