Dunmurry Mill - Lyrics

The first place that I met my love
The truth to you I'll tell
Was in her sister's dwelling place
Near hand to Colinwell
Her beauty so enticed me
I could not pass her by
I asked her if she'd marry me
She said she would comply

The next place that I met my love
Was in Dunmurry Town
Her hair hung over her shoulders
All of a glossy brown
Her carriage neat, her slender waist
She stole my heart away
And death I'm sure will be the cure
If you take her far away

Now me I am a bleacher
And I work in Seymour Hill
My love she is a spreader
And she spreads in Dunmurry Mill
And if I do not gain her love
It'll cause my blood to spill
So I'll bid farewell to all my friends
Around sweet Colin Hill

Now I have friends in Hannahstown and some in Tornagrough
There is but one amongst them
She is my pride and joy
She is my joy, my only love
Wherever she may be
Kind Providence protect her now
She's loyal unto me

Dunmurry is a mighty sweet place
All shaded round with trees
And in the summer season the honey feeds the bees
And in the spring the small birds sing
Around the flax mill door
And I'll say farewell Dunmurry Mill
I'll never see you more
And I'll say farewell Dunmurry Mill
I'll never see you more
