American Old Time Song Lyrics: 04 Johnny Dongherty The Tailor
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 4
Johnny Dongherty, the Tailor.
Sung by James Daly.
You've all heard of the solid men
And men of great renown;
But if you'll listen for awhile,
I'm certain you will own
That I'm the most respected man.
In this great town; and why?
It is because when I walk out,
You will hear the people cry-
I'm Mr. Johnny Dougherty, the tailor,
A man of great renown;
And everybody knows that to make a suit of clothes,
I'm the very best that you'll find in all this town,
I've heard them say a tailor is
The ninth part of a man,
Let them get up and knock me
Into nine parts if they can.
Devil a one would ever dare
To box me for a foe,
For I can box as well as stitch,
As very well they know -Chorus.
