  1. Local Song (continued)

    By her side she let it fall,

    (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 way
    I met a man upon the road
    Quite close to Williamstown
    I asked him whose was this crop of oats
    And why not cut it down
    That I will soon tell you
    And that I will tell you true
    It being to one John Ganley
    Who was evicted in eighty two
    Martin 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 pound
