Subject: The Reason I Left Mullingar - Lyrics (fureys)
The Fureys and Davey Arthur performed this song as their opener at a number of concerts I performed at. The only snippets I recall are "I walked through this city a stranger, In a land I can never call home, I cast a sad notion across me, in search of my child hood to roam. I'm weary of working and drinking, with a week's wages left in a bar, but to work till you're dead for one room and a bed's not the reason I left Mullingar.

I have searched the DT to no avail. Any help please?
