The Dark Side of Nancy Mulligan

Adapted by Riya Aarini from “Nancy Mulligan” by Ed Sheeran

 

I was 24 years oldnancy-mulligan

When I met the woman who’d

Steal my horse

She’d call it love

Then swing like a pro with a lasso rope

 

She was Nancy Mulligan

An outlaw on the run again

She took my loot and

Then we were done

Down by the Wild West border

 

Never had I seen such ardor before

The moment that I saw her

She whipped two pistols like

A cold hard crook

And went down yonder in long lost yore

 

Nancy was my thorny rose

She stole 3 beer kegs and my saddled horse

Said she loved me like a sullen boar

And changed me into love’s soldier

You know Nancy I abhor ya

 

She and Jill went on the run

They don’t care about The Onion

She’s going to marry the woman she loves

Down by the Wild West border

 

She was Nancy Mulligan

An outlaw on the run again

She took my loot and

Then we were done

Down by the Wild West border
