Nancy Mulligan is a song by Ed Sheeran, which appears as the fifteenth track from his third album ÷.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Celeb Mix writer Ellie Doe-Demosse stated: "Nancy Mulligan is a banger on so many levels, words cannot describe our love for this song. We love it because of how it makes us feel, and we especially love the story behind this entire song. Rumor has it that Nancy Mulligan is a story of how his grandparents William and Anne, sparked their romance. How cute is that? Nancy Mulligan also happens to be another one of his tribute songs to his grandparents, as another from his past released songs was “Afire Love” for his late grandfather." [1]

Commercial performanceEdit

The song peaked at #13 on the UK Singles chart.

LyricsEdit

I was twenty-four years old
When I met the woman I would call my own
Twenty-two grand kids now growing old
In that house that your brother bought 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

Will, met her at Guy's in the Second World War
And 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
