  1. (continued from previous page)
    But they ne're would compete with the lads from the Line.
    Of a much noted family, Ill sing you again.
    Tis Kateen, Mickeen, and Tomeen Holloran.
    Let you stay at home now thats all let you stay
    at home while were going to the fair of Stonehall.
    Then farewell to old Ireland the land of my birth.
    Tis the dearest and fairest and lovliest on earth.
    Heres a health to Kildimo that old home of mine.
    And may God bless and keep that gang from the Line.
