trashcan sinatras – i hung my harp upon the willows lyrics

Loading...

i hung my harp upon the willows
when i first made this harbor town
my broken heart by fair eliza
still fresh and raw when i came to town

i learned a trade from alexander
a scoundrel of the first degree
and within the year i was so despondent
that doctor fleeming, well knew me

oh eglinton, floating on the water
oh eglinton, the rose was there for me
i hung my harp high upon the willows
of irvine town by the sea

on hogmanay i burned the work down
i found myself without a crown
oh, but i had more than any silver
’cause i had a friend in richard brown

in eglinton wood we’d wander
on the drukken steps i would recite
take your harp down from the willows
said richard brown and he was right

oh eglinton, floating on the water
oh eglinton, the road was there for me
i took my harp down from the willows

richard brown, i bow to thee
richard brown, i bow to thee
richard brown, i bow to thee
