Brennan On The Moor Lyrics

Tis of a brave young highwayman, this story we will
tell
His name was Willie Brennan and in Ireland, he did
dwell
'Twas on the Kilworth mountains, he commenced his wild
career
And many a noble wealthy man before him shook with fear
Chorus:
And it's Brennan on the moor, Brennan on the moor
Bold, brave and undaunted was young Brennan on the moor
One day upon the highway as Willie, he went down
He met the mayor of Cashell a mile outside the town
Now, the mayor, he knew his features and he said 'young
man,' said he
'Your name is Willie Brennan, you must come along with
me'
Now, Brennan's wife had gone to town, provisions for to
buy

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
Now with this loaded blunderbuss, the truth I will
unfold
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 mountain did repair
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 it last was said
By a false hearted woman, he was cruelly betrayed
They took Willie to the crossroads and there they hung
him high
But still they say that in the night, there's some that
see him ride
They see him with his bluderbuss all in the midnight
chill
As all along the King's Highway rides Willie Brennan
still
