Johnston's Motorcar Lyrics

It was down by Egan`s corner one morning I did stray
I met a fellow rebel there and this to him did say
"We have orders from the Captain to assemble at Drumbar
oh but how are we to get there without a motor car?"

Well Barney dear be of good cheer and I`ll tell you
what we`ll do
The specials they are plentyful and the I.R.A. are few
We`ll wire up to Stranorlar and before we`ll get that
far
We`ll give the boys a bloody good ride in Johnson`s
motor car

When Doctor Johson got the news he soon put on his
shoes
He said "This is an urgent case there is no time to
lose!"
He then put on his castor hat and upon his breast a
star
You could hear the din going through Glenfin of
Johnson`s motor car

Well when he got to the Reelin bridge the rebbels he
saw there
He knew the game was up with him for at him they did
stare
He said "I have a permit to travel near and far"
You can stick your English permit we want your motor
car

What will my loyal brethren say when'ere they hear the
news
My car it has been commandeered by rebels at Dunluce
"We`ll give you a receipt for it all signed by Captain
Barr
And when Ireland gets her freedom you`ll get your motor
car!"

They set the car in motion and filled it to the brim
With rifles and with bayonets, this mad old Johnson
grim
And Barney hoisted the Sinn Féin flag and it fluttered
like a star
And they gave three cheers for the I.R.A. and Johnson`s
motorcar
