    The Tinker Nancy Miles

    Nancy was a tinker girl, roamed the country roads
    And I will tell you how she came to be a legend in her time
    The reason I have come to know, 'cause a tinker told me so
    Who's there could better know, the tale of Nancy Miles

    Nancy's father Tinker Dan, was a proud but honest man
    Drove a horse drawn caravan, all through the Emerald Isle
    And when Nancy was no more a child, Dan he didn't have to toil
    Men would come from far and wide, to play for Nancy Miles

    There's pretty girls in magazines, and movie stars and beauty queens
    Nancy was the prettiest girl, a man could ever see
    The gleam of love was in her eyes, and when she'd look at you and smile
    'Twould make you feel that you were just the man she longed to see

    Before the age of twenty-one, a hundred men had come and gone
    None of them could win the gleam of love that was in her eyes
    Then sure every man who loved her then, never was the same again
    His memory was haunted, with thoughts of Nancy Miles

    In every town and village too, the fame of Nancy grew and grew
    Soon her name was spoken, at many a camp fireside
    And in Ballinasloe, on Horse Fair Day, when tinker men would have their say
    Many a fight was fought to win the coat of Nancy Miles

    I hope that you don't get me wrong, 'cause Nancy was the sweetest one
    Heart so full of kindness, and as charming as her smile
    And she was known throughout the land, as queen of all the tinker clan
    Was the dream of many a man, to marry Nancy Miles

    Before the age of thirty-one, a thousand men had come and gone
    None of them could win the gleam of love that was in her eyes
    Then sure every man who loved her then, never was the same again
    His memory was haunted, with thoughts of Nancy Miles

    Then there came the saddest day, Nancy's father passed away
    The loss it grieved her badly, for he was her only pride
    And family friends and courtin' men, never saw her smile again
    A change had taken place within the heart of Nancy Miles

    Before the age of forty-one, Nancy she had come and gone
    They searched the county over, not a trace of her could find
    Oh but Nancy's memory will live on, as long as tinker men are born
    Proudly they will sing this song, the tinker Nancy Miles
