Malachy Lyr/Chords Req: Arthur McBride (from Paul Brady) (46) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Paul Brady \ Arthur McBride 01 Dec 03

Been trying to remember the version I sure it's the Planxty one!

I had a first cousin called Arthur McBride
He and I took a stroll down by the seaside
A seeking good fortune and what might the tide
It was just as the day was a dawning
Then after resting(then a line/s I cant remember)
We met Seargent Napper and corporal Cramp
Besides the young drummer who beat up for camp
With his rowdy dow dow in the morning

He says my young fellows if you will enlist
A guinea shall instantly have in your fist..

And then another verse..says something like..

He says my young fellows if hear but one word
I instantly now will out with my sword
And into your bodies as strength will abhor
Just as the day was a dawning
But Arthur and I..(more missing words)

Just cant remember anymore for the time being. If I've repeated something already posted..apologies.
