Ed Sheeran - The Parting Glass Lyrics




Of all the money that e'er I had
I've spent it in good company
And all the harm that e'er I've done
Alas it was to none but me
And all I've done for want of wit
To memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They would wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all

A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again
But since it has so ought to be
By a time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
Good night and joy be with you all

Ed Sheeran The Parting Glass Comments
  1. whitewalker mike

    I lost my cousin a few months ago and before that i had never heard this song. This was played at his funeral and that's when I broke down. Since then I listen to it constantly to feel more connected to him. I miss you sean

  2. KTMstu1

    This is a traditional Scottish folk song, not Irish 😊

  3. SherbetNags

    Did it bother anyone else that this song was tacked on the end of Give Me Love? Give Me Love is a great song, but I think this really should have been its own track on +.

  4. Sandman552

    Ed Sheeran should do more songs like this. I think he should do "Here's a Health to the Company"

  5. Bethany Torres

    just a 2019 comment passing through

  10. Alf Tupper

    This song was introduced into Scotland by a Irish minstrel named O'Neill! He travelled all over Ireland and Scotland where he found the same Gaelic culture ! The Scotti tribe from Ireland drove out the Picts and that is how Scotland got its name and is Keltic!!

  11. Francis Cronin

    I would die if they played that song at my funeral.

  12. Aoife Ní Eireamhóin

    Oh all the money that e'er I spent
    I spent it in good company
    And all the harm that e'er I've done
    Alas, it was to none but me
    And all I've done for want of wit
    To memory now I can't recall
    So fill to me the parting glass
    Good night and joy be with you all
    Oh all the comrades that e'er I've had
    Are sorry for my going away
    And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had
    Would wish me one more day to stay
    But since it falls unto my lot
    That I should rise and you should not
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all
    Good night and joy be with you all

  51. Gala Labrie

    A man may court a pretty girl and perhaps be welcome back again...

  52. SkimMan

    Ac4 has the most fulfilling ending of a game I have ever played, it made me feel so happy when I first heard this song, and I always love finishing the game, so I can hear the song.

    Ed Sheeren does a great job of that partin glass props to you Ed (Ledgend)🎶✨💓🎶✨👣🙌is

  60. Noumenon4Idolatry

    Sounds like auto tune. I suppose it’s not easy for him to sing it without it. Still a nice song.

  61. Livia Fernandes

    I don't know if this was a bug or an easter egg, but in my + cd this song would play around a minute after Give Me Love or is it Kiss Me..? Can't remember but you know, the last song. Not like a "next song" more like an end to the cd, along with the last song. Anyone experienced the same?

  62. Max Pain

    R.I.P Mary Read And Blackbeard

  63. Olenhol

  69. Akhilesh Yadav

    where we all started😣😢😢😢

  70. Calvin Luchs

    Rest Easy Jason...

  71. Scxrdy

    The walking dead bring me here :))

  72. Korasi

    He ruined this song for me.... Anyone wondering what I could possibly be talking about, please search for "the parting glass - the waillin' jennys". That version is a thousand times more true to the original feel of the piece.
    This ed sheeran version is full of unnecessary vocal twiddles and vibratos, it's literally just musical wanking. Just because you can do acrobatics with your vocal chords doesn't mean you should do it on every single lyric...
    He butchered it...

  73. Alexsandra Alexandra

    I can’t listen to it , it’s so emotional 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  74. Gottfried Lenz

    Been thinking it's extended "Give me Love"... 😲

  75. Gabriel Novak

    Shine bright, circus man.

  76. October Knight

    My people's song .old Irish tune . mothers and fathers sang this song when the English army murdered pillaged and raped Ireland.Time for unity . freedom comes from the hand God.

  77. Adrian Young

    My funeral song. Honour me

  78. Basil Wilmot

    lol what a joke listen to Shane Macgowan parting glass this is so bad ahah

  79. The Confucian Atheist

    I always associate this song with Edward Kenway.

  80. xxKAMIKAZExx 愛

    R.I.P BETH

  81. Morgan Schneider

    does anybody know what key this is in

  82. Alams Alams

    Why a game character can make me cry?
    That's weird
    *Typing while crying*

  83. Hasan Melih Var

    The walkıng DEAD 3 season :)

  84. Augusto 366

    Edward <3

  85. M Viv

    Why Beth why.???

  86. Bobbi Draws

    Traditional Celtic songs should not be attempted to be molded into pop music. It just don’t work.

  87. Roy Pinaki

    Verse 1]
    Of all the money that e'er I had
    I spent it in good company
    And all the harm that e'er I've done
    Alas it was to none but me
    And all I've done for want of wit
    To memory now I can't recall
    So fill to me the parting glass
    Good night and joy be with you all

    [Verse 2]
    Of all the comrades that e'er I had
    They are sorry for my going away
    And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
    They would wish me one more day to stay
    But since it falls unto my lot
    That I should rise and you should not
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all

    [Verse 3]
    A man may drink and not be drunk
    A man may fight and not be slain
    A man may court a pretty girl
    And perhaps be welcomed back again
    But since it has so ought to be
    By a time to rise and a time to fall
    Come fill to me the parting glass
    Good night and joy be with you all
    Good night and joy be with you all

  92. War_Daddy

    Accidentally clicked on this version by mistake and sorry, whilst Ed Sheeran has a nice voice this version pales in comparison to the one by the high Kings. Din't manage to capture the tone or the raw emotion the original evokes.

  93. Finding Hare

    How have I only just found this haha amazing

  94. darien meyers

    Cheers boys may your cups never run dry 🍻🍻🍻
