Local Song (continued)

On the 13th of August you's all mind the day
(continued from previous page)

On the 13th of August you's all mind the day
When the light Water Band to Inch took her way
To gather the orange men all that mighty day
But Nancy Mac Cormac her praises will sing
She stood on the rampart like an Irish Drogon.
She fired the bombshells, off left wing
And she broke down, the carriage and David Colhoun
Three cheers for Nancy whose praises well sing.
