X: 1 T:Crossmaglen R:reel C:Ed Reavy M:2/2 L:1/8 Z:Joe Reavy N:I'm told that the road from Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen N:is lined with your worst sort of rogues. The verse N:perhaps comes from some old cantankerous Irishman N:who probably never himself walked this road. If he had, N:he would surely have been charmed with the likes of what he N:saw and heard. (Another tune to delight Ed's close friend N:from Armagh: Lou Quinn).
