"The Parting Glass" er en traditionel skotsk folkesang, der ofte bliver sunget som den sidste ved sociale begivenheder.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Den er også blevet sunget i Irland, hvor den har oplevet stor popularitet, og som også har haft indflydelse på, hvordan den bliver sunget.[3][4] Det var angiveligt den mest populære afskedssang, der blev sunger i Skotland inden Robert Burns skrev "Auld Lang Syne".[1][6]

Tekst redigér

Teksten variere lidt, men lyder generelt som følger:

Of all the money that e'er I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm I've ever 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 be to you all
So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate’er befall,
And gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all
Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all
If I had money enough to spend
And leisure time to sit awhile
There is a fair maid in this town
That sorely has my heart beguiled.
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips
I own she has my heart in thrall
Then fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all.
A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again
But since it has so ought to be
By a time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
Good night and joy be with you all
