I Know My Love
The Chieftains Lyrics


I know my love by his way of walking
And I know my love by his way of talking
And I know my love dressed in a suit of blue
And if my love leaves me what will I do...

And still she cried, "I love him the best
And a troubled mind sure can know no rest"
And still she cried, "Bonny boys are few
And if my love leaves me what will I do"
There is a dance house in Maradyke
And there my true love goes every night
He takes a strange girl upon his knee
Well now don't you think that that vexes me?

And still she cried, "I love him the best
And a troubled mind sure can know no rest"
And still she cried, "Bonny boys are few
And if my love leaves me what will I do"

If my love knew I can wash and wring
If my love knew I can sew and spin
I'd make a coat of the finest kind
But the want of money sure leaves me behind

And still she cried, "I love him the best
And a troubled mind sure can know no rest"
And still she cried, "Bonny boys are few
And if my love leaves me what will I do"

I know my love is an arrant rover
I know he'll wander the wild world over
In dear old Ireland he'll no longer tarry
An American girl he's sure to marry

And still she cried, "I love him the best
And a troubled mind sure can know no rest"
And still she cried, "Bonny boys are few
And if my love leaves me what will I do"

And still she cried, "I love him the best
And a troubled mind sure can know no rest"
And still she cried, "Bonny boys are few
And if my love leaves me what will I do"

What will I do...

Wonderful version, love the Corrs and the Chieftans!

Michael Dineen

The Corrs always had respect for old songs. They make a good job of this song.

Erik M

did they? I feel like most of their recordings are their own compositions, or covers from the 70s-80s-90s, besides the trad Irish tunes.

The Corrs (especially Andrea) have my favorite voices in all music. I can't believe this has been up for almost 3 1/2 years (and the song's been around for more than a decade) and I'm just now hearing it. Thank you @Eliandrog for posting it!

Paul Sweeney

This is the best version of this song I've heard to date. The singing is crystal clear, and combined with the backing of the chieftains, it's a perfect match.

Mike McCaffrey

Not only can these girls sing and play,but they're very pleasent to the eyes. Knock down gorgeous!!!!!

Tom Hoban

this piece introduced me to the Corrs. I´m a big fan now, but this is still my favorite. I´ll put it on at least once a day.

Dom H

same here

Steve MacLeod

This is the best video of the Corrs I have seen. Andrea really gets into singing this song and enjoying herself. As a result we all enjoy it.
