Beyond Rathkelly
 
Francis Carlin
 
 
AS I went over the Far Hill,
    Just beyond Rathkelly,
    —Och, to be on the Far Hill
    O’er Newtonstewart Town!
As I went over the Far Hill        5
    With Marget’s daughter Nellie,
The night was up and the moon was out,
    And a star was falling down.
 
As I went over the Far Hill,
    Just beyond Rathkelly,        10
    —Och, to be on the Far Hill
    Above the Bridge o’ Moyle!
As I went over the Far Hill,
    With Marget’s daughter Nellie,
I made a wish before the star        15
    Had fallen in the Foyle.
 
As I went over the Far Hill,
    Just beyond Rathkelly,
    —Och, to be on the Far Hill
    With the hopes that I had then!        20
As I went over the Far Hill,
    I wished for little Nellie,
And if a star were falling now
    I’d wish for her again.
