- To sing the praise of Ballymore
I'll try for you this night
I pray you pay attention
To the few lines that I'll write
The boys and girls are cheerful.
And its them I do adore
The grandest place in all Westmeath
Is charming Ballymore.
To first begin at Clooneen
Where Tommy Timbs does dwell.
And Mullaghcloe, and sweet Doniel
Are places I like well.
Its from the hill of Rathskeagh.
You would see the World o'er.
I would live upon a meal a day
Round charming Ballymore
It's from the Rock of sweet Doniel
You could see that splendid lake.
If I was but a Photographer.
It's pictures I would take.
I would present it to Mrs Brown
And I could do no more
Gold letters I would print on it.
The Lake of Ballymore.(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
