Subject: RE: Christy Moore's lyrics REQ
Your anonymous benefactor left out verse 2.

At the mouth of the Foyle, bade fareweel to the soil
As down below decks we were lyin',
O'Doherty screamed woken out of a dream
By a vision of bold Robert dyin',
The sun burnt cruel as we dished out the gruel,
Dan O'Connor was down with a fever,
Sixty rebels today bound for Botany Bay,
How many will reach their receiver?
