I was comin' home from Ross
wan night an' I had two horses
an' they were really quiet

When I came to the gate of
Hickey's rath one of the
horses stopped, an' I could
not get him to pass.
I turned him around an'
tried to back him but he would
not pass.
After a long time I got him
to pass an' the sweat poured
off him
I never liked passing that way
after.
