IT SHOWERED AGAIN.
Copyright, 1888, by Wm. A. Pond & Co.
Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

The clouds were low'ry, the rumble of thunder
Was shaking the vaults of a dark, heavy sky,
When I met Mary Casey, and said, come in under
The awning of Murphy till the shower goes by.
Said she, with great pleasure, I have plenty of leisure,
I'm trembling And nervous in fear of the rain.
Oh, we waited and waited, till the storm had abated,
She started to go, but it showered again;
Oh, we waited and waited, till the storm had abated,
She started to go, but it showered again.

We talked of the weather, the rain kept a falling,
And Murphy's white awning began for to leak;
Then we heard a loud voice in the bar-room a-bawling,
'Twas Murphy himself with his musical squeak.
He sang, oh, so bravely: "The Last Rose of Summer,"
The crowd gathered 'round for to hear the sweet strain;
Then said Mary: Good-bye, oh, sure, now I must leave you!
She started to go, but it showered again;
Then said Mary: Good-bye, oh, sure, now I must leave you!
She started to go, but it showered again.

The horse-cars were crowded, the street was blockaded
With buggies And wagons, yet Murphy did sing;
Oh, said I, lovely Mary, I'm lone and unaided,
When on her first finger I placed a gold ring.
She blushed like a posy, and bowed her head shyly,
And whispered: Now, Barney, oh, what do you meant
For my mother has promised, sure, my hand to Pat Reilly!
She started to go, but it showered again;
For my mother has promised, sure, my hand to Pat Reilly!
She started to go, but it showered again.

The sky it grew darker, the elements warring,
The thunder of heaven so loudly did roar;
While I said: Dearest Mary, your love I'm imploring,
Then Murphy looked out with a smile from his door.
Said I: Mary Casey, don't take this for a blarney,
The name of Pat Reilly has given me pain;
Will you marry me. loved one? then she answered: Yes, Barney!
The sun it came out and cleared off the rain;
Will you marry me, loved one? then she answered: Yes, Barney!
The sun it came out and cleared off the rain.
