BRENNAN ON THE MOOR (An Irish Ballad)
G. No. 1636. Ace. on guitar and sung- by Blaine Stub-blefield, Washington, D.C. (version from Oregon), 1938. See Sh, 2:170; Ma, p, 309.
I About a fierce highwayman my story I will tell, His name was Willie Brennan and in Ireland he did dwell, It was upon King's Mountain he began his wild career, And many a rich gentleman before him shook with fear/ Oh, it's Brennan on the moor.
Chorus:
Brennan on the moor,
Bold, gay, and undaunted, stood young Brennan on the moor.
[317]
