The October winds lament around the Castle of Dromore

       6m                     5      1             4         5             1  

Yet peace is in her lofty halls, my loving treasure store

               4          5                   4                 1                   5                1

Though autumn leaves may droop and die, a bud of spring are you

     6m    4                 5           1             6m             
    Sing hushabye loo, lul loo, low lan

               4                 5            1                       
    Sing Hushabye loo, lul loo

Bring no ill wind to him nor us, my helpless babe and me
Dread spirits all of black water, Clan Owen's wild banshee
And Holy Mary pitying us in Heaven for grace doth sue

Take time to thrive, my ray of hope, in the garden of Dromore
Take heed, young eaglet, 'till thy wings are feathered, fit to soar

A little rest and then the world is full of work to do
