GUEST,.gargoyle 'Garryowen' as a dog whistle (12) RE: 'Garryowen' as a dog whistle 09 Jul 20


Garryowen
<https://www.irishsongs.com/lyrics.php?Action=view&Song_id=129<

Let Bacchus' sons be not dismayed
but join with me each jovial blade
booze and sing and lend your aid
to help me with the chorus

CHORUS
Instead of spa we'll drink down ale
and pay the reckoning on the nail
no man for debt shall go to jail
from Garryowen in glory

We are the boys that take delight
smashing the Limerick light when lighting
through all the streets like sporters fighting
and tearing all before us CHORUS

We'll break the windows we'll break the doors
The watch knock down by three's and four's
then let the doctors work their cures
and tinker up our bruises CHORUS


We'll beat the bailiffs out of fun
we'll make the mayors and sheriffs run
we are the boys no man dares dun
if he regards a whole skin CHORUS

Our hearts so stout have got us fame
for soon 'tis known from whence we came
where're we go they dread the name
of Garryowen in glory



................

GARRYOWEN. DT #2180
( The DT version lacks the joyful jubilation of running amuck>

Let Bacchus' sons be not dismayed
But join with me, each jovial blade
Come, drink and sing and lend your aid
To help me with the chorus:

cho: Instead of spa, we'll drink brown ale
And pay the reckoning on the nail;
No man for debt shall go to jail
From Garryowen in glory.

We'll beat the bailiffs out of fun,
We'll make the mayor and sheriffs run
We are the boys no man dares dun
If he regards a whole skin.

Our hearts so stout have got no fame
For soon 'tis known from whence we came
Where'er we go they fear the name
Of Garryowen in glory.


Sincerely,
Gargoyle

great tune with a history that far exceeds the small glory we can give it... hear.
