Memory of Frank McGrath

Plaque for Frank 2014 1st anniversary

 

19th November 1954 - 5th March 2013Plaque for Frank 2014 1st anniversary

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 mem'ry now I can't recall

So fill to me the parting glass

Good night and joy to 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.
