Brave Bold Donnelly
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)
There was a pretty maiden, she was going to a ball.
She saw a jolly tinker hammering tins against the wall.
and mush-a brave bold Donnelly, good enough, said she.
There's good blood in young Donnelly, he's the boy for me!
He sauntered through the kitchen, and he sauntered through the hall.
He sauntered through the parlour, over knights and ladies all.
She then went up the stairs, to dress and make her bed,
In two steps he was after her, and he knocked her on the bed.
She then went down the stairs, to bolt and bar the door.
In two steps he was after her, and he knocked her on the floor.
She then took out a whistle, and she blew it sharp and shrill.
And twenty of the old police came galloping o'er the hill.
She then got him arrested, and he got three months in jail.
She went out behind his back, took another one out on bail.
