Subject: RE: lyr.req. Johnny Lovely Johnny
Ah Barry,
Now I have:

[The high walls of Derry look dismal and gray]
[And so does lovely Johnny, he is now going away]
[He is going to Bonny courtland some sweet girl for to see]
[Oh Johnny lovely Johnny do you mind me....]
[When you came to my window to steal me away]
[You'd promised you'd marry me...]
[Oh Johnny lovely Johnny what about of your mind]
[Oh Annie lovely Annie it was all but addressed]
[For I never intended to make you my ...]
[I never intended to make you my wife]
[Oh Annie lovely annie]
[All the days of my life]
[The first time I met you tis well I go.....]
[Twas in my father's garden in the county Tyrone]
[With my white aprom round us to shield up our way]
[Oh Johnny lovely Johnny what about of your .....]
[A bunch of blue ribbons I'll tie up and wear]
[And a wreath of forget me nots]
[I will twine in my hair]
[And if ever he returns again I will greet him with [joy]
[And I will kiss the lips of my own Johnny boy]

You see I haven't quite got the verses right, Barry.
