Road from Killoglin to Caherciveen

Lyrics

I’ve tramped around England and the most part of Wales
I’ve seen all their valleys, their mountains and dales
But in all of my travels, no equal I’ve seen
As the road from Killoglin to Caherciveen

Now we start around Milltown where the fresh winds blow fair
And then we’ll go westward and straight to Puck Fair
Caragh Lake and Dook’s Golf Links and then Curraheen
On the road from Killoglin to Caherciveen

So now we’re in Glenbeigh more lovelier than all
Backed up by Rossbeigh with sand dunes so tall
And the mountains Cross station no longer is seen
On the road from Killoglin to Caherciveen

And again we’ll go westward and come to Drom Lower
Where many a fowler went fowling of yore
On the long range of mountains from Bahaghs to Sneem
On the road from Killoglin to Caherciveen

So now we are nearing our journey’s end
When Gortaforia you come to Strandsend
Where Sullivan the blacksmith, he still keeps up steam
On the road from Killoglin to Caherciveen

Then away o’er the water at Knockaunrory
Where oft times I strolled with my friends long ago
Where the water runs fair and the grass, it grows green
On the road from Killoglin to Caherciveen

Oh now we are back in that lovely old town
Where no man or woman will ever let me down
When I pray to the Lord to be laid in the green
With the stout-hearted people of Caherciveen
