BRENNAN ON THE MOOR

'Tis of a brave young highwayman

This story I will tell

His name was Willie Brennan

And in Ireland he did dwell

It was on the Kilwood Mountain

He commenced his wild career

And many a wealthy nobleman

Before him shook with fear



Chorus:

Chorus:

It was Brennan on the moor

And when she saw her Willie

She commenced to weep and cry

Said, Hand to me that tenpenny

As soon as Willie spoke

She handed him a blunderbuss

From underneath her cloak



Chorus:

It was Brennan on the moor

Brennan on the moor

Bold, brave and undaunted

He made the mayor to tremble

And he robbed him of his gold

One hundred pounds was offered

For his apprehension there

So he, with horse and saddle

To the mountains did repair



Chorus:

It was Brennan on the moor

Brennan on the moor

Bold, brave and undaunted

Was young Brennan on the moor



Now Brennan being an outlaw

Upon the mountains high

With cavalry and infantry

To take him they did try

He laughed at them with scorn

Until at last 'twas said
