Roger O'Hehir

At the Eight Mile Bridge in the County Down
I had honest parents of fame and renown
Oh had I been obedient and kept the command
I never would have broken the laws of the land.

My parents endeavoured to give me honest bread
They bound me apprentice unto the linen trade
All to an honest weaver that lived hard by
My heart was for rambling I could not comply.
