Castle of Dromore

(Kate Power & Steve Einhorn)
Traditional
The October winds lament around the castle of Dromore
Yet peace lies in her lofty halls, my loving treasure store
Though Autumn leaves may droop and die
A bud of Spring are you

Sing hush-a-bye loo, lo loo, lo lan
Hush a bye loo, lo loo

Dread spirits all of the Blackwater, Clan Owen's wild banshee
Bring no ill will to him nor us, my helpless babe and me
And Holy Mary pitying us, to heaven for grace doth sue

Sing hush-a-bye loo, lo loo, lo lan
Hush a bye loo, lo loo

Take time to thrive, my ray of hope, in the gardens of Dromore
Take heed, young eaglet, till thy wings, are feathered, fit to soar
A little rest and then the world is full of work to do
A little rest and then the world is full of work to do
