I am looking for the lyrics to two popular Irish ballads

"My heart is in Ireland" (the Wolfe Tones have done a version of this)

"Hand me down me Bible" (the Dubliners have done this one)

I would appreciate any response

This is what I made of one, the other I've got but I can't find it. I'll keep looking for you. Regards Mick Bracken

Hand Me Down Me Bible

Oh Glory-O now I'm the Lord's disciple
Oh Glory-O now hand me down me bible

I like my liquor and my livin' hard, (baby?) Lord save my soul
My salvation was the turn of card, my heart's as black as coal
But everybody's got the right to go wrong
Everybody's got to sing my song
Everybody's got the right to go wrong
Sing my song sing my song

Oh Glory-O now I'm the Lords disciple
Oh Glory-O now hand me down me bible

I don't give a damn for any man, as all the world can see
The time has come to make a stand, to shine your light on me
Come on people let your life begin
Come on now let the sun shine in
Come on people let your life begin
Let it in, let it in

Oh Glory-O now I'm the Lord's disciple
Oh Glory-O now hand me down me bible

Lyrics now in the Digital Tradition

I think the line

I like my liquor and my livin' hard, (baby?) Lord save my soul

is (in the version I got - The Luke Kelly Collection -

I like my liquor and my livin' hard, may the Lord save my soul

At least this is what I hear - I haven't got the lyrics printed down.
(I would never have understood the word "disciple" without reading your version)

Andreas

Hand Me Down My Bible was written by Phil Coulter and is clearly about Ian Paisley
