It Is Wet And Windy In Duhallow Today

Somethings never change as some are known to say
It is wet, windy and cold in Duhallow today
The sky of December clouded over and gray
And cattle in farm shed bellow for silage or hay

The song thrush doesn't sing on bare deciduous tree
It is raining in Cullen and in Knocknagree
The Allow in Kanturk bank high in flood waters of brown
And it is raining in Newmarket and Meelin and in Millstreet Town

In Duhallow's winter weather little reason for cheer
News of flooding in Kilcorney, Rathcoole and Banteer
No winter sunshine where skies are never clear
In Duhallow it is an indoors time of year

Cold and wet in Rockchapel, Kiskeam and in Boherbue
Likewise in Dromtarriffe and in Derrinagree
Weatherwise from Lyre or Castlemagner no good news to report
In Duhallow in Winter not a good time for games or for outdoor sport

Where the rain driven gales often blow themselves tame
Weatherwise in Duhallow every Winter the same
Mushera, Clara and Caherbarnagh in their hats of snow
And Finnow to the Blackwater bank high does flow.
