about

A girl's father refuses his daughter's hand to a man of lesser means.

lyrics

A Band Of Gold

The days are long since we first parted
Your father’s will has made it so
I have no land, I have no cattle
And have no way to win your hand

Away I’ll go, away I’ll wander
And to Kilbride I’ll not return
Oh my true love I have no fortune
And I can’t buy a band of gold

So fare thee well and kiss me softly
One last time is all I ask
And say for me there’ll be no weeping
You’ll see in time it’s for the best

Away I’ll go, away I’ll wander
And to Kilbride I’ll not return
Oh my true love I have no fortune
And I can’t buy a band of gold

Instrumental

Away I’ll go, away I’ll wander
And to Kilbride I’ll not return
Oh my true love I have no fortune
And I can’t buy a band of gold
