    -- | LYRICS | --

    I was twenty four years old when I met the woman I would call my own
    Twenty two grand kids now growing old, in the house that your brother brought ya
    On 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

    She and I went on the run
    Don’t care about religion
    I’m gonna marry the woman I love
    Down by the Wexford border
    She was Nancy Mulligan, and I was William Sheeran
    She took my name and then we were one
    Down by the Wexford border

    Well I met at her Guys in the second world war
    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

    She and I went on the run
    Don’t care about religion
    I’m gonna marry the woman I love
    Down by the Wexford border
    She was Nancy Mulligan, and I was William Sheeran
    She took my name and then we were one
    Down by the Wexford border

    From her snow white streak in her jet black hair
    Over sixty 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

    She and I went on the run
    Don’t care about religion
    I’m gonna marry the woman I love
    Down by the Wexford border
    She was Nancy Mulligan, and I was William Sheeran
    She took my name and then we were one
    Down by the Wexford border

                                      I liked this Irish melody and the fact that he doesn't care about religion and marries a woman he loves and that they had 8 children xD

                                              Absolutely love this song. There are people in my class that don’t like Ed just because he’s ginger 🤦🏻‍♂️ I’m only 12, but he really inspires me, want to be a pop guitarist when I grow up

At that time protestants and Catholics didn't really get along. I don't know too many Catholics that have married protestants today though either.
