lyrics

Hills of Connemara

Chorus:
Gather up the pots and the old tin pan
The mash, the corn, the barley and the bran
Run like the devil from the excise man
Keep the smoke from risin' Barney

Keep your eyes well peeled today
For the tall, tall men are on their way
Searchin' out for the mountain tay
In the hills of Connemara

(Chorus)

Swing to the left now swing to the right
The excise men will dance all night
Drinkin' up the tay till the morning light
In the hills of Connemara

(Chorus)

A gallon for the butcher a quart for Tom
A bottle for dear old Father John
To help him and his hip along
In the Hills of Connemara

(Chorus)

Stand your ground now, it's too late
The excise men are at the gate
Glory be to God, they're drinkin' it straight!
In the hills of Connemara

(Chorus)

(One, two, ready, go)

I'll Tell Me Ma

Chorus:
I'll tell me ma, when I go home
The boys won't leave, the girls alone
They pull my hair, they stole my comb
But that's alright, till I go home
She is handsome, she is pretty
She is the belle of Belfast city
She goes a-courtin' one, two, three
Please won't you tell me, who is she

Albert Mooney says he loves her
All the boys are fightin' for her
Knock at the door and ring at the bell
Sayin' oh my true love are you well
Out she comes as white as a rose
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
Old Johnny Morrisey says she'll die
If she don't get the fellow with the rovin' eye

(Chorus)

Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
Let the snow come tumbling out the sky
She's as sweet as apple pie
She'll get her own lad bye and bye
And when she gets a lad of her own
She won't tell her ma when she gets home
Let them all come as they will
It's Albert Mooney she loves still

(Chorus)
