Frank Howe lyr: I Wish I Was A-Huntin' (Makem and Clancy) (2) RE: Makem and Clancy 06 Apr 99

I assume you're asking for the lyrics?


And I wish I was huntin' where the wild ducks run
With the rabbits and the pheasants and the hares
Or searchin' for the fox 'neath the ferns and the rocks
And I wouldn't give you tuppence for my cares

On a fine sunny morning when the dew is on the grass
And the mist is lying soft upon the hill
I would ramble through the bog just meself and the dog
Or go fishin' in the river by the mill


There are trout in the river there are salmon there as well
And sometimes along there's slippy eels
And the meadows would be ringing with the sweet lark singing
And the people there working in the fields


In the merry month of June when the fields are in bloom
And the dust begins to fall upon the stem
If you want a pint or so and you knew just where to go
You could find them makin' poteen in the glen


In the month of October when the weather's turnin' cold
And the yellow and the stubble's on the ground
There are bright window lights burnin' holes in the night
And the fiddle music's playin' all around
