“The Parting Glass”
A simply beautiful song, this is. Today is a day for revelers here in Dallas. Lower Greenville avenue will be filled, no doubt, with party goers wearing green. A parade, as is customary, will be led by Vincent Zubras playing the bagpipes as he has done for well over a decade.
Here’s the last verse:
If I had money enough to spend and leisure time to sit awhile,
There is a fair maid in this town who sorely has my heart beguiled.
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips, I own she has my heart in thrall,
So fill me to the parting glass, goodnight and joy be with you all.
