One part. But here is what SHE said.. Found the lyrics. I believe it's one of those Irish melodies that crossed the pond and gave rise to an American version. Maybe that's the real difference?
The Gal I Left Behind Songtext
Anyway, the Jolly Beggarmen and the Dublin City Ramblers have good versions of this if you can find them:. Says my aul wan old one to your aul wan. Will yes come to the waxies dargle?

Says your aul wan to my aul wan, Sure I haven't got a farthing. I've just been down to Monto town.
Girl I Left Behind Me
To see Uncle McArdle. But he didn't have half a crown. For to go to the waxies dargle. What are yes having, will yes have a pint? Yes, I'll have a pint with you, sir, And if one of us doesn't order soon. Well be thrown out of the boozer.
Says my aul wan to your aul wan. Will yes come to the Galway races? Says your aul wan to my aul wan, With the price of my aul lads braces. I went down to Capel Street. To the Jew man moneylenders. But they wouldn't give me a couple of bob on. My aul lad's suspenders. We have no beef or mutton. But if we go down to monto town. We might get a drink for nuttin.
Here's a piece of good advice. I got from an aul fishmonger: When food is scarce and you see the hearse. Youll know you have died of hunger.
The Gal I Left Behind - Arlo Guthrie - VAGALUME
Thanks, Francis. I really enjoy playing old timey tunes with Steve Eulberg. And, you're welcome. I then went home to change my life And see my long neglected wife. I told her not to mourn and weep Because her babe had gone to sleep; Its happy soul had fled away To dwell with Christ till endless day.
I taken her by her pale white hand, She was so weak she could not stand; I laid her down and breathed a prayer That God might bless and save her there. I then went to the Temperance hall And taken a pledge among them all. They taken me in with a willing hand And taken me in as a temperance man. So seven long years have passed away Since first I bowed my knees to pray; So now I live a sober life With a happy home and a loving wife.
I struck the trail in seventy-nine, The herd strung out behind me; As I jogged along my mind ran back For the gal I left behind me. That sweet little gal, that true little gal, The gal I left behind me! She wrote ahead to the place I said, I was always glad to find it. When we sold out I took the train, I knew where I would find her; When I got back we had a smack And that was no gol-darned liar.
As I walked out one morning for pleasure, I met a cowpuncher a jogging along; His hat was throwed back and his spurs was a jingling, And as he advanced he was singing this song. Early in the springtime we round up the dogies Mark them and brand them and bob off their tails Round up the horses and load the chuck wagon Throw them little dogies right out on the trail.
The Gal I Left Behind Me
In the evening we round in the dogies As they are grazing from herd all around You have no idea the trouble they give us As we are holding them on the bed ground. In the morning we throw off the bed ground Aiming to graze them an hour or two When they are full, you think you can drive them On the trail, but damned if you do. I think of the big-hearted fellows Who will divide with you blanket and bread, With a piece of stray beef well roasted, And charge for it never a red.
But the way to the green pastures, though narrow, Leads straight to the home in the sky, And Jesus will give you the passports To the land of the sweet by and by. For the Savior has taken the contract To deliver all those who believe, At the headquarters ranch of his Father, In the great range where none can deceive. No maverick or slick will be tallied In the great book of life in his home, For he knows all the brands and the earmarks That down through the ages have come.

Yet I trust in the last great round-up When the rider shall cut the big herd, That the cowboys shall be represented In the earmark and brand of the Lord, To be shipped to the bright, mystic regions Over there in green pastures to lie, And led by the crystal still waters In that home of the sweet by and by. Drunkard hell. Trying it out on harmonica.
