[Verse 1]
I was twenty-four years old
When I met the woman I would call my own
Twenty-two grand kids now growing old
In that house that your brother bought ya

Oh the summer day when I proposed
I made that wedding ring from dentist gold
And I asked her father, but her daddy said, "No
You can't marry my daughter"

[Chorus]
G              C      G
She and I went on the run
D                  C  G
Don't care about religion
                    C       G
I'm gonna marry the woman I love
D                   Em
Down by the Wexford border
G             C  G
She was Nancy Mulligan
    D             C   G
And I was William Sheeran
                     C            G
She took my name and then we were one
D                   Em
Down by the Wexford border

[Verse 2]
Well, met her at Guy's in the second world war
And she was working on a soldier's ward
Never had I seen such beauty before
The moment that I saw her
Nancy was my yellow rose
And we got married wearing borrowed clothes
We got eight children now growing old
Five sons and three daughters

[Chorus]
G              C      G
She and I went on the run
D                  C  G
Don't care about religion
                    C       G
I'm gonna marry the woman I love
D                   Em
Down by the Wexford border
G             C  G
She was Nancy Mulligan
    D             C   G
And I was William Sheeran
                     C            G
She took my name and then we were one
D                   Em
Down by the Wexford border

[Verse 3]
From her snow white streak in her jet black hair
Over sixteen years I've been loving her
Now we're sat by the fire in our old armchairs
You know Nancy, I adore ya
From a farm boy born near Belfast town
I never worried about the king and crown
'Cause I found my heart upon the southern ground
There's no difference, I assure ya

[Chorus]
G              C      G
She and I went on the run
D                  C  G
Don't care about religion
                    C       G
I'm gonna marry the woman I love
D                   Em
Down by the Wexford border
G             C  G
She was Nancy Mulligan
    D             C   G
And I was William Sheeran
                     C            G
She took my name and then we were one
D                   Em
Down by the Wexford border
