Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Little Jimmy Murphy

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

'Twas down in Kilkenny the great row was making,
And poor little Jimmy Murphy was the lad that was taken.

We're far from the last rout, from the East to Downpatrick,
Where lies poor little Jimmy Murphy on the sweet green mossy banks,
Skinnymalink killymajoe whiskey frisky tooraloo,
Rank a diddle dido ding dooral i doe.

We marched through the town and we marched through the city,
With our hands tied behind us and the ladies cried "Pity."


Now Jimmy Murphy wasn't hanged for sheep stealing
But for courting a pretty maid and her name was Kate Whelan
