You are watching: The rocky road to dublin the high kings

In the merry month of June from my home I startedLeft the girls of Tuam nearly broken heartedSaluted Father dear, kissed my darling motherDrank a pint of beer, my grief and tears to smotherThen off to reap the corn, leave where I was bornCut a stout blackthorn to banish ghosts and goblins;Brand new pair of brogues, rattlin' o'er the bogsFrightenin' all the dogs on the rocky road to DublinChorus:One two three four fiveHunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky roadAnd all the way to Dublin, Whack fol lol le rah!In Mullingar that night I rested limbs so wearyStarted by daylight my spirits bright and airyTook a drop of the pureKeep my heart from sinking;That's the Paddy's cure whenever he's on for drinkingTo see the lassies smile, laughing all the whileAt me curious style, 'twould set your heart a bubblin'An' asked if I was hired, wages I required'Till I was nearly tired of the rocky road to DublinChorus:One two three four fiveHunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky roadAnd all the way to Dublin, Whack fol lol le rah!
In Dublin next arrived, I thought it such a pityTo be so soon deprived a view of that fine cityWell then I took a stroll, all among the quality;Bundle it was stole, all in a neat localitySomething crossed my mind, when I looked behindNo bundle could I find upon my stick a wobblin'Enquiring for the rogue, said my Connaught brogueWasn't much in vogue on the rocky road to DublinChorus:One two three four fiveHunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky roadAnd all the way to Dublin, Whack fol lol le rah!From there I got away, me spirits never failingLanded on the quay, just as the ship was sailingThe Captain at me roared, said that no room had he;When I jumped aboard, a cabin found for PaddyDown among the pigs, played some funny rigsDanced some hearty jigs, the water round me bubbling;When off Holyhead wished meself was deadOr better far insteadOn the rocky road to DublinChorus:One two three four fiveHunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky roadAnd all the way to Dublin, Whack fol lol le rah!

The boys of Liverpool, when we safely landedCalled meself a fool, I could no longer stand itBlood began to boil, temper I was losingPoor old Erin's isle they began abusing"Hurrah me soul!" says I, me shillelagh I let flySome Galway boys were nigh and saw I was a hobble inWith a loud "Hurray!" joined in the affrayWe quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to DublinChorus:One two three four fiveHunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky roadAnd all the way to Dublin, Whack fol lol le rah!Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky roadAnd all the way to Dublin, Whack fol lol le rah!
