Oh love is pleasing and love is teasing
And love is a pleasure when first it’s new
But as it grows older, sure the love grows colder
And it fades away like the morning dew

I left my father, I left my mother
I left all my brothers and sisters too
I left all my friends and relations
I left them all for to follow you

But the sweetest apple is the soonest rotten
And the heart of love is the soonest cold
And what can’t be cured love, has to be endured love
And now I am bound for America

And love and porter make a young man older
And love and whiskey make him old and grey
And what can’t be cured love has to be endured love
And now I am bound for America

[C]I wish I wish I [G7]wish in vain
I wish I was a youth a[C]gain
But a youth again I will [G7]never be
Till apples grow on an ivy [C]tree

Oh love is pleasing and love is teasing
And love is a pleasure when first it’s new
But as it grows older, sure the love grows colder
And it fades away like the morning dew

I left my father, I left my mother
I left all my brothers and sisters too

But the sweetest apple is the soonest rotten
And the heart of love is the soonest cold
And what can’t be cured love, has to be endured love
And now I am bound for America

And love and porter make a young man older
And love and whiskey make him old and grey
And what can’t be cured love has to be endured love
And now I am bound for America
