Nancy Mulligan Letra

I was twenty four years old
When I met the woman I would call my own
Twenty two grand kids now growing old
In the house that your brother brought ya
On the summer day when I proposed
I made that wedding ring from dentist gold
And I asked her father but her daddy said, "No
You can't marry my daughter"

She and I went on the run
Don't care about religion
I'm gonna marry the woman I love
Down by the Wexford border
She was Nancy Mulligan
And I was William Sheeran
She took my name and then we were one
Down by the Wexford border

Well, I met at her Guys in the second world war
And she was working on a soldier's ward
Never had I seen such beauty before
The moment that I saw her
Nancy was my yellow rose
And we got married wearing borrowed clothes
We got eight children now growing old
Five sons and three daughters

She and I went on the run
Don't care about religion
I'm gonna marry the woman I love
Down by the Wexford border
She was Nancy Mulligan
And I was William Sheeran
She took my name and then we were one
Down by the Wexford border

From her snow white streak in her jet black hair
Over sixty years I've been loving her
Now we're sat by the fire, in our old armchairs
You know Nancy I adore ya

From a farm boy born near Belfast town
I never worried about the king and crown
Cause I found my heart upon the southern ground
There's no difference, I assure ya

She and I went on the run
Don't care about religion
I'm gonna marry the woman I love
Down by the Wexford border
She was Nancy Mulligan
And I was William Sheeran
She took my name and then we were one
Down by the Wexford border

Sobre Nancy Mulligan

  • "Nancy Mulligan" es una canción tradicional irlandesa que rinde homenaje a los abuelos paternos de Sheeran, Anne "Nancy" Mulligan y William "Bill" Sheeran. Es especialmente un tributo a su abuela, que es del condado de Wexford, Irlanda. Sheeran dijo que él escribió esta canción, porque sus abuelos "tenían este tipo de romance de Romeo y Julieta que es muy romántico".

    El grupo folklórico Beoga, con base en Antrim, ayudó a Sheeran a crear esta canción, incluyendo al violinista Niamh Dunne, quien sirvió de inspiración para su canción Galway Girl.
