Thread Name: DT Correction: The King of Ballyhooley
Subject: Lyr Add: King of Ballyhooley
Saw this in the database, and this verse had one line missing:

This young man quickly left her side. He 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?"
