  1. (no title) (continued)

    I am an exiled Irish man ¶ Far away from home

    (continued from previous page)
    my heart now sinking wearily.
    Beneath misfortunes load
    Would bound it again in youthful love
    In dear old Galway Road.
    The author of this poem was Dr. Huban who was a great ballad composer and an Irish patriot and fought in '98 only to be transported to the island of Columbia where he composed this song.

    Come listen a while with attention
    My verse so exquisitely grand
    Concerning the brave men of Galway
    Interested in Castleboy fine land
    II
    this land which was bought by commissioners
    About five hundred acres or more
