Brennan on the Moor
|'Tis of a brave young highwayman, this story I will tell|
His name was Willie Brennan and in Ireland he did dwell
It was on the Kilwood Mountain that he commenced his wild career
And many a wealthy nobleman before him shook with fear.
It was Brennan on the moor, Brennan on the moor.
Bold, brave and undaunted, was young Brennan on the moor.
2. One day upon the highway as young Willie he went down,
3. Now Brennan's wife had gone to town, provisions for to buy;
4. Now with this loaded blunderbuss, the truth I will unfold
5. Now Brennan being an outlaw, upon the mountains high.
