TWENTY-ONE YEARS Traditional (Ireland) The judge said "Stand up lad and dry up your tears" You're sentenced to Dartmoor for twenty-one years" So dry up your tears babe and kiss me goodbye The best friends must part now, so must you and I I hear the train coming, 'twill be here at nine To take me to Dartmoor to serve up my time I look down the railway and plainly I see You standing there waving your goodbyes to me Six months have gone by babe, I wish I were dead Tis a cold dreary dungeon and rocks for my head It's raining, it's hailing, the moon gives no light Now will you tell me babe, why you never write I've counted the days babe, I've counted the nights I've counted the footsteps, I've counted the lights I've counted the raindrops, I've counted the stars I've counted a million of these prison bars I waited, I trusted, I longed for the day A life-time so lonely, now my hair's turning grey All my thoughts are for you babe, 'til I'm out of my mind For twenty-one years is a mighty long time For twenty-one years is a mighty long time
