music: Pitmen - lyrics: Sean O'Casey

Well, it was down by Christchurch that I first met with Annie
A neat little girl and nor a bit shy
She told me her father that came from Dungannon
Would be take her back home in the sweet by and by

And what's it to any man whether or no
Whether I'm easy or whether I'm true
As I lifted her petticoat easy and slow
And I tied up me sleeve for to buckle her shoe

All along Thomas Street down to the Liffey
The sunshine was gone and the eveninh grew dark
Along King's Bridge and begod in a jiffey
Shure me arms was around her beyond in the park


Now, from city or country a girl is a jewel
And well build for grippin' the most of them are
But if any younf fellow, he's really a fool
If he tries at the first time for to go a bit far


So if you should go to the down of Dungannon
You ma ysearch 'til your eyeballs are empty or blind
Be yue lyin' or walkin', be sittin' or runnin'
Shure a girl like Annie you never will find

Chorus 2x
