Clannad - Two Sisters Lyrics


There were two sisters side by side, sing aye-dum, sing aye-day,
There were two sisters side by side, the boys are born for me,
There were two sisters side by side, the eldest for young Johnny cried,
I'll be true unto my love, if he'll be true to me.

Johnny bought the youngest a gay gold ring.....
He never bought the eldest a single thing....

Johnny bought the youngest a beaver hat.....
the eldest didn't think much of that.....

As they were walking by the foamy brim....
The eldest pushed the youngest in....

Sister oh sister give me thy hand....
And you can have Johnny and all his land....

Sister I'll not give you my hand....
And I'll have Johnny and all his land....

So away ahe sank and away she swam....
Untill she came to the Miller's dam...

The Miller he took her gay gold ring....
And then he pushed her in again....

The Miller he was hanged on the mountain head....
The eldest sister was boiled in lead....
