I'm hoping someone can share more information about this song. I came across it in my search for information on rapparees (they're mentioned in two novels I'm currently reading and I didn't know what they were).

I found the lyrics at wikipedia -- here. The source referenced is the book Passing the Time in Ballymenone: Culture and History of an Ulster Community.

I also found two recordings of the song.

One by EmmettJude -- here.

The other by Cathal McConnell and Duncan Wood (McConnell and Wood) -- here.
