GUEST,Jimmy C Lyr Req: Gary Owen (not the old one) (56* d) RE: LYRICS for 05 Jul 00

Re Joe Offer's message;

Joe - I listened to the tune but it is not the one I'm talking about. I will have to try to get it to you somehow. The Lyrics (or most of them at least) of the Molly Bawn I am thinking of are as follows. It's been a long time since I thought of this song but I will try to get the missing words A.S.A.P. It may even be known as Brian Og and Molly Bawn?

P.S. The words of Garryowen in Glory will be forwarded as well - just after this.

Oh, come listen to my story, Molly Bawn,
For I'm bound for death or glory, Molly Bawn,
For I've listed in the army,
Where no more your eyes can harm me,
For they'd kill me while they charm me, Molly Bawn.

Oh, musha! You've been drinking, Brian Og.
I can tell it by your winking, oh you rogue!
For I know you're not the villain
That would take the Saxon shillin'
And do their dirty killin', Brian Og.

'Twas yourself that drove me to it, Molly Bawn.
When you read my death, you'll rue it, Molly Bawn.
When I'm in the thick of battle
Where the cannons loudly rattle,
????????????????????????? Molly Bawn.

???????????????????????????????????????? Brian Og.
???????????????????????????????????????? Brian Og.
Would you let that thief Phil Dornan
Come and wed me in the morning
???????????????????????????????????????? Brian Og?

Well now that you've confessed it, Molly Bawn,
I thought you might have guessed it, Molly Bawn.
The sergeant tried but missed it, Molly Bawn.

Can anyone fill in the blanks?
