Aghadoe (John Todhunter) (For money, Shaun Davey betrays his sister, who was hiding her rebel lover in the glen of Aghadoe in County Cork.) There's a glen in Aghadoe, Aghadoe, Aghadoe There's a deep and secret glen in Aghadoe Where we met my love and I, love's fair planet in the sky In that deep and silent glen in Aghadoe There's a glade in Aghadoe, Aghadoe, Aghadoe There's a deep and secret glade in Aghadoe Where I hid from the eyes of the redcoats and their spies That year the trouble came to Aghadoe But they tracked me to that glen in Aghadoe, Aghadoe When the price was on his head in Aghadoe O'er the mountain through the wood as I stole to him with food But the bullets found his heart in Aghadoe I walked from Mallow town to Aghadoe, Aghadoe I took his head from the jail gate to Aghadoe There I covered him with fern and I piled on him the cairn Like an Irish king he sleeps in Aghadoe TK APR99
