Tarry Flynn

Irish Song Lyrics - Tarry Flynn

Oh you're a rascal Tarry Flynn
you're writing poetry instead of diggin drills
stollin' around the fields all day
won't you ever work or won't you ever stay

is there a man who cares that I should be spared such of a life of druggery
of diggin clay tossin' cocks and hay wishin' all the day that somehow I could be set free

oh mother can't you see that the farmer's life it was never meant for me to reap and sew
I don't want to know but to Dublin go for that's where my life should be

don't come to say goodbye mothers always cry shake my hand and set me free
when fame has come to my Dublin home maybe then you'll come there some day and visit me
