Thread Name: St Pat's Day in the Mudcat Tavern
I'll bring a couple of cases of Black Bushmills and drink a toast to all hands today; cause I'm bloody working midnights on St Patrick's day. Well with the Irish breakfast I plan, my diet is shot to hell. THE HILLS OF CONNEMARA...Yours, Aye. Dave

Gather up the pots and the old tin can
The mash, the corn, the barley and the bran
Run like the devil from the excise man
Keep the smoke from rising Barney

Swing to the left and swing to the right
The Excise men will dance all night
Drinking up the tay till the broad daylight
In the hills of Connemara

RPT 1st verse as chorus

A gallon for the Butcher a quart for Tom
A bottle for poor old father John
To help the poor old dear along
In the hills of Connemara


Stand your ground it is too late
The Excise men are at the gate
Glory be to Paddy, they're drinking it Nate
In the hills of Connemara
