- (continued from previous page)As I was going one day
From Dunmore to Castlerea
If you draw near
I'll let you hear
What I saw on the wayI met a man upon the road
Quite close to Williamstown
I asked him whose was this crop of oats
And why not cut it downThat I will soon tell you
And that I will tell you true
It being to one John Ganley
Who was evicted in eighty twoMartin Burke is too lazy to work
And always rambles round
And if he found an ass upon the grass
He would stick him into a poundTranscribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
