Rare Old Mountain Dew

Rare Old Mountain Dew – Irish drinking songs – Hard Green

Oh, Let the grasses grow and waters flow in a free and easy way
But give me enough of the rare old stuff that’s made near Galway Bay
Come gaugers all from Donegal, Sligo and Leitrim too
And, we’ll give them a slip and we’ll take a little sip
Of the rare old Mountain Dew

Hi di-diddly-idle-um, diddly-doodle-idle-um, diddly-doo-ri-diddlum-deh
Hi di-diddly-idle-um, diddly-doodle-idle-um, diddly-doo-ri-diddlum-deh

There’s a neat little still at the foot of the hill
Where the smoke curls up to the sky
By the whiff of the smell you can plainly tell
That there’s poitin’ boys nearby
For it fills the air with a perfume rare
And betwixt both me and you
As home we roll, we will take a bowl
Or a bucket full of Mountain Dew

Hi di-diddly-idle-um, diddly-doodle-idle-um, diddly-doo-ri-diddlum-deh
Hi di-diddly-idle-um, diddly-doodle-idle-um, diddly-doo-ri-diddlum-deh

Now the learned men as use the pen
Have writt’ the praises high
Of the rare poitin’ from Ireland green
Distilled from wheat and rye
Aaway with your pills, it’ll cure all ills
Be a Pagan, Christian or Jew
So take off your coat and grease your throat
With the bucket full Mountain Dew

Hi di-diddly-idle-um, diddly-doodle-idle-um, diddly-doo-ri-diddlum-deh
Hi di-diddly-idle-um, diddly-doodle-idle-um, diddly-doo-ri-diddlum-deh
