  • Notes: The lyrics of this Irish ballad were written by Cathal MacGarvey in the early 20th century, using a traditional melody. It uses a tight rhyme scheme: Each verse is a double quatrain, and the first and third lines of each quatrain have an internal rhyme on the second and fourth feet: [aa]b[cc]b. The chorus is a single quatrain with the same rhyming pattern.
    This worksheet is based on Van Morrison & The Chieftains’ 1999 recording but there are many versions available, some with extra verses.
