Irish Song Lyrics - Easy and Slow

It was down by Christ Church where I first met with Annie
a sweet gentle maiden and not a bit shy
she told me her father who came from Dungannon
would take her back home in the sweet bye and bye

and what's it to any man whether or no
whether I'm easy or whether I'm slow
as I lifted her petticoat aisy and slow
and I rolled up my sleeve for to buckle her shoe

along by Thomas Street down by the Liffy
the sun it was settin' as evening grew dark
along by Kingsbridge and begod in a jiffy
my arms were around her beyond in the park CHORUS

from city to country a girl is a jewel
and well made for grippin' as most of them are
but any young man would be such a fool
if he tries on the first time to go a bit far CHORUS

so if ever you go to the town of Dungannon
you can search till your eyeballs grow weary or blind
be you sittin' or walking or running or standin'
a girl like my Annie you never will find CHORUS
