'Rocky Road to Dublin' is a traditional Irish folksong.
Lyrics are attributed to 19th-century Galway poet, D.K. Gavan



In the merry month of May, from my home I started,
Left the boys of Tuam nearly brokenhearted,
Saluted father dear, kissed my darling mother,
Drank a pint of beer, my grief and tears to smother..

Went off to reap the corn..
Leave where I was born,
To banish ghosts and goblins,
A brand new pair of brogues to rattle over the bogs,
And frighten all the dogs.. on the rocky road to Dublin.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road and all the way to Dublin,
