Kathy, would this be it, perhaps? BTW "cailin rua" means "girl with red hair," or literally, "red girl".

I'm guessing a bit here, but

RUA probably = ruadh = red Cailin = Lass/girl?

Gaelic experts feel free to shoot me down in flames..

Cheers

With variations, that seems to be the most common Irish tune title: Cailin ruad, Mo cailin ruad, Mo cailin deas ruad, Red haired girl, etc. About a dozen can be found in the Irish tune title index on my website, but I don't have songs for any of them. www.erols.com/olsonw

Red Hair"

[Verse 1]
I guess I fell in love too quick kinda got burned up by a red head chick.
So I ain't tryin go that route again.
I was rolling through a stop sign, lookin at a red light when I seen her ass walk by.
That's when I found my new friend.
And she had blonde hair, bright blue eyes, looking like a flower child.
Top down, music loud jamming to her favourite song.
I'm down, she was down, so we really hit it off.
And I know she could never do, do to me what them red heads do.

[Chorus]
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
Cause everytime I go there I see them red head girls just ain't no good.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
Cause everytime I go there I see them red head girls just ain't no good.

[Verse 2]
Got a girl whose a real knock out, got me all turned out, but I still have doubts.
Why she gonna get her hair done again (she's gonna get her hair done again).
She did something kinda strange the other day, I was looking at a picture of her family,
She came and snatched it away (it away).
And I don't know why she would hide it.
And there are certain things about her, that I still don't know.

[Chorus]
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
Cause everytime I go there I see them red head girls just ain't no good.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
Cause everytime I go there I see them red head girls just ain't no good.

[Verse 3]
My girl walked in today, but there was something strange.
I still recognized her face but something else had changed (oohooh).
She had bright red hair, I just stopped and stared.
Walked by me like she didn't care, that hair was always there.

See I know Imma be okay, I got rid of Miss Red today.
Tryna cover up behind my back, but I knew that red would come right back.
See I know Imma be okay, I got rid of Miss Red today.
Tryna cover up behind my back, but I knew that red would come right back.

[Chorus x2 + ad libs]
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
Cause everytime I go there I see them red head girls just ain't no good.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
I'm scared that girl's a red head.
Cause everytime I go there I see them red head girls just ain't no good.
