QOTD: Parting Glass

Though this technically isn’t a quote from a book, there is a book about this game so I’m saying it counts. If you don’t agree I’ll be behind the school at 4:00 ready to fight. (not actually I’d lose to a feather)

One of my favourite video games has this song in it, so therefore this is a song I really like.

Ed Sheeran sings it fairly well, but my favourite is the version in Assassins Creed: Black Flag.

Take a Look.


Heres the lyrics if you just want to take a look.

Oh all the money that e’er I spent
I spent it in good company
And all the harm that e’er I’ve done
Alas, it was to none but me
And all I’ve done for want of wit
To memory now I can’t recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
Oh all the comrades that e’er I’ve had
Are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e’er I’ve had
Would wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I’ll gently rise and I’ll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all
Good night and joy be with you all
