Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bold Fenian Men
I know this as:

Down by the glenside I met an old woman
A-plucking young nettles, nor saw she my coming
I listened awhile to the song she was humming,
"Glory-O, Glory-O to the bold Fenian men"

and so on.

I also know the other one - the two songs are very different; the first is a lament, the second a rousing march.
