There was a man wan time an'
he was comin' home an' he
happened on a lepracaun.
He asked him to tell him where
the money was an' he said,
"If you do not tell me I will
kill you."
The leprecaun tould him where
it was, an' the man had a
blackthorn stick, an' he stuck
it where the money was, an'
he went home to his dinner.
When he went back the leprecaun
had black sticks stuck everyplace an' he was gone.
