Just have been curious.

Who threw the overalls in Mrs.Murphy's chowder
When i mowed Pat Murphy's meadow
lMurphy's homemade still
isn't there one about the stone by Dan Murphy's door
Several about Father Murphy
I think the female passenger in Banks of newfoundland was Bridget Murphy

Jimmy Murphy

T'was down in Kilkenny the great row was making
And poor little Jimmy Murphy was the last to be taken

CHO: We are far from the last rout
    From the East to Downpatrick
    Where lies poor little Jimmy Murphy
    On the sweet green mossy banks
    skinnymalink killymajoe whisky frisky tooraloo
    Rank a diddle dido ding dural i doe!

We gathered our pikes, our flintlocks and great branches
And straight to Wexford town we made our advances

We took Vinegar Hill, Enniscorthy and Gorey
T'was the boys of the Cork Militia that deprived us the glory

We marched through the town and we marched through the city
Our hands were tied behind us and the ladies cried "Pity."

Now Jimmy Murphy was hanged - not for sheepstealing
But for courting a pretty girl and her name was Kate Whelan

Oh dear..not nice lyrics.. but it reminds me of a little ditty we learned in grade school that we knew not to sing in front of the nuns..

Two Irishmen two Irishmen two Irishmen in a ditch
One of them called the other one you dirty son of a
Peter Murphy had a dog a very fine dog was he
He gave it to a lady to keep her company

Give a yell, give a cheer
For the boys who drink the beer
In the cellars of Murphy's saloon.

They are brave, they are bold
For the liquor they can hold
In the cellars of Murphy's saloon.

For it's guzzle, guzzle, guzzle
As the beer goes down their muzzle.
Shout out their orders loud and clear
More beer!

And if Murphy find us here
We'll say, Murphy, have a beer
In the cellars of Murphy's saloon.

Learned in New York City, circa 1960. Many variants available by typing "cellars of Murphy's saloon" into a search engine.

Murphy's Stout is good no doubt
Drink it in and piss it out
Here's up 'em all

Murphy and his cousin
Paralysed a half a dozen
Hit both both swift and hard
And a handful of our boys
Sure they'll never make a noise
For they're lying in the old churtchyard
Without their boots on
Lying in the old churchyard
(from MacCarthy's Party)

Taking a broad look at the range of songs people have come up with, it must be said that seems to be a litle bit of national stereotyping going on here.

when I mowed Pat Murphy's Meadow in the sunny long ago..a lovely Newfoundloand song by ?? Devine


The[G] autumm winds are here again
And the[C] night winds chilly[G] grow
The wood land turns to[D7] golden[Em] hue
And the[G] harvest moon's a[D7]glow
To[G] hear again of[D7] days long[Em] past
To[G] come no more I[D7] know
When I[G] mowed Pat[C] Murphy's[G] meadow
In the[C] sunny long a[G]go

I see again the ocean and the distant sails afar
As the maiden in the meadow stricks up ''Dark Lough Na Gar''
There was music soft and tender in the winds that whisper low
When I mowed Pat Murphy's meadow in the sunny long ago

Where are the happy boys and girls that danced the gay quadrille
Or the singer who wardled sweetly ''The Burning Granite Mill''
To hear again at sunset ''Where Sweet Afton Flow''
When I mowed Pat Murphy's meadow in the sunny long ago

Those days are but a memory like the snow of yesteryear
And evening shades are falling all alone I shed a tear
On my cheek I feel the soft touch of the winds that whisper low
When I mowed Pat Murphy's meadow in the sunny long ago
