Artist's Description

Inspired by this beautiful song:

Nancy was a tinker girl
who roamed the country roads
And I will tell you how she came to be a legend in her time
And the reason that I’ve come to know
well the tinker told me so
Who better than to pass to me the tale of Nancy Myles

Nancy’s father tinker Dan
was a poor but honest man
Drove a horse drawn caravan all through the Emerald Isle
When Nancy was no more a child
Dan he didn’t have to toil
Men would come from far and wide to pay for Nancy Myles

There’s pretty girls in magazines Movie stars and beauty queens
Nancy was the prettiest girl a man could ever see
And the gleam of love in her eyes
when she’d look and you and smile
Make you feel that you were just the man she’d long to she

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
Any man who loved her then
never was the same again
His memory was haunted with thoughts of Nancy Myles

In every town and village too
the fame of Nancy grew and grew
Soon her name was spoken at many a campfire’s side
And in Ballislough on horse fair day
when tinker men would have their say
Many a fight was fought to win the court of Nancy Myles

I hope that you don’t get me wrong
Nancy was the sweetest one
Heart so full of kindness and as charming as her smile
She was known through out the land the queen of all the tinker clan
’Twas the dream of every man to marry Nancy Myles

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
Every man who loved her then
never was the same again
His memory was haunted with thoughts of Nancy Myles

Then there came the saddest day
Nancy’s father passed away
The loss it grieved her dearly
and her heart was filled with pain
Family friends and courting men
never say her smile again
A change had taken place within the heart of Nancy Myles

Before the age of Forty-one
Nancy she had come and gone
They searched the country over
not a trace of her could find
Nancy’s memory will live on
as long as tinker men are born
Proudly they will sing this song
the song of tinker Nancy Myles
