Songs are sung by Mrs. Murray Kinkeen (82) which were composed by her father. She sings nine or ten with 80 to 100 lines in each.

In many countries I have been
And lasses I've seen many O.
The fairest lass that e'er I've seen
Is charming dark-haired Annie O.
She has my heart entire in woe
I love her beyond many O.
The ruling empress of my soul
Is charming dark-haired Annie O.
(The above old lady is at present ill but I may get the songs later & forward them).
