The Makem & Spain Brothers: The Tradition Continues
Back to song list


October winds lament around the Castle of Dromore
Yet peace is in her lofty halls, my loving treasure store
Though autumn leaves may droop and die
A bud of spring are you

Singing hush-a-by loo, la-loo, lo-lan
Sing hush-a-by loo-la-lo

Bring no ill will to hinder us, my helpless babe and me
Dread spirits of the Blackwater, Clan Owen's wild banshee
And Holy Mary pitying us
In Heaven for grace doth sue


Take time to thrive my ray of hope in the garden 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
