The page contains the lyrics of the song "Near Cootehill Town" by John Spillane.

Lyrics

In the small green hills near sweet Cootehill
In a lonesome hollow I will build my still
Let the silver moonlight gently spill
All around my cabin door
Near Cootehill town I’ll settle down
I’ll roam this world no more
A mossy blanket for my bed
The drooping branches overhead
The Rowan berries dripping red
All along the old lakeshore
Near Cootehill town I’ll settle down
I’ll roam this world no more
So far thee well sweet Annalee
I wonder will you think of me
On your slow meander to the sea
From the banks of sweet Dromore
Near Cootehill town I’ll settle dowm
I’ll roam this world no more.
