Monto- Wearing of the Green
Down by the Liffey side - Goodbye and do not Cry, Down by Texas Way, Soldier's Song   

Rodney's Glory does have lyrics. They were composed by Eoghan Ruadh O'Suiillebhan (Owen Roe o Sullivan) - the last of the great Irish bards - within hours of the famous sea battle in which he had participated:
"Give ear ye British hearts of gold /That e'er disdain to be controlled/Good news to you I will unfold /'Tis of brave Rodney's glory......"
Daniel Corkery gives all eight verses in "Hidden Ireland" and tells the strange story of how the song came to be written .
