Subject: RE: DT Correction: The King of Ballyhooley
Actually the line should read, "It was afraid", as below:
This young man quickly left her side.
It was afraid of me that he was.
And still the lassie did not hide.
It was in love with me that she was.
Then quickly up beside her came.
Says I, "Fair maid, I love you truly;
And if your parents give consent,
will you be my bride in Ballyhooley?"
