FOLLOW ME UP TO CARLOW Lift Mac Cahir Og your face, broodin' o'er the old disgrace That black Fitzwilliam stormed your place & drove you to the fern Gray said victory was sure, soon the firebrand he'd secure Until he met at Glenmalure with Fiach McHugh O'Byrne Curse and swear, Lord Kildare, Fiach will do what Fiach will dare Now Fitzwilliam, have a care, fallen is your star low Up with halberd, out with sword, on we go for, by the Lord Fiach McHugh has given the word "Follow me up to Carlow" See the swords at Glen Imaal, flashin' o'er the english pale See all the children of the Gael, beneath O'Byrne's banner Rooster of a fighting stock, would you let a Saxon cock Crow out upon an Irish Rock, fly up and teach him manners Curse and swear, Lord Kildare, Fiach will do what Fiach will dare Now Fitzwilliam, have a care, fallen is your star low Up with halberd, out with sword, on we go for, by the Lord Fiach McHugh has given the word "Follow me up to Carlow" From Tassagart to Clonmore, flows a stream of Saxon gore How great is Rory Og O'Moore at sending loons to Hades White is sick, Gray is fled, now for black Fitzwilliam's head We'll send it over, dripping red, to Liza and her ladies Curse and swear, Lord Kildare, Fiach will do what Fiach will dare Now Fitzwilliam, have a care, fallen is your star low Up with halberd, out with sword, on we go for, by the Lord Fiach McHugh has given the word "Follow me up to Carlow"

THE BLACKSMITH A blacksmith courted me Nine months and better He fairly won my heart Wrote me a letter With his hammer in his hand He looked quite clever And if I was with my love I'd live for ever But where is my love gone With his cheeks like roses? And his good black Billycock on Decked round with primroses? I'm afraid the scorching sun Will shine and burn his beauty And if I was with my love I'd do my duty Strange news is come to town Strange news is carried Strange news flies up and down That my love is married I wish them both much joy Though they can't hear me And may God reward him well For the slighting of me Don't you remember when You lay beside me? And you said you'd marry me And not deny me? If I said I'd marry you It was only for to try you So bring your witness love And I'll not deny you No, witness I have none Save God Almighty And may he reward you well For the slighting of me Her lips grew pale and wan It made her poor heart tremble To think she loved that one And he proved deceitful A blacksmith courted me Nine months and better He fairly won my heart Wrote me a letter With his hammer in his hand He looked quite clever And if I was with my love I'd live forever

I'm a Rover 03:35
I'M A ROVER I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company Though the night be as dark as dungeon, not a star can be seen above I will be guided without a stumble, into the arms of my own true love I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company He stepped up to her bedroom window, kneeling gently upon a stone He whispers through her bedroom window, my darling dear do you lie alone I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company It's only me your own true lover, open the door and let me in For I have come on a long nights journey and I'm near drenched to the skin I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company She opened the door with the greatest pleasure, she opened the door and she let him in They both shook hands and embraced each other, until the morning they lay as one I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company Says I: My love I must go and leave you, to climb the hills they are far above But I will climb with the greatest pleasure, since I've been in the arms of my love I'm a rover, seldom sober, I'm a rover of high degree It's when I'm drinkin' I'm always thinkin' how to gain my love's company
