739. Airly Beacon
AIRLY Beacon, Airly Beacon; 
  O the pleasant sight to see 
Shires and towns from Airly Beacon, 
  While my love climb'd up to me! 
Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon;         5
  O the happy hours we lay 
Deep in fern on Airly Beacon, 
  Courting through the summer's day! 
Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon; 
  O the weary haunt for me,  10
All alone on Airly Beacon, 
  With his baby on my knee!
