Blue Mountain Lake

Come all of you fellas where'er you may be
Come sit down awhile and listen to me
The truth I will tell you without a mistake
'Bout the rackets we had down in Blue Mountain Lake
Derry down down down derry down

There’s the Sullivan Brothers and big Jimmy Lou
And old Moose Gilbert and dandy Pat too
As fine lot of fellah’s as ever was seen
And they all worked for Griffin on township 19
Derry down down down derry down

Bill Mitchell you know he kept our shanty
As mean a damn man that you ever did see
He laid round the shanty from morning til night
If a man said a word he was ready to fight
Derry down down down derry down

One day before daylight Jim Lou he got mad
Knocked the hell out of Mitchell and the boys was all glad
His wife she stood there and the truth I will tell
She was tickled to death to see Mitchell catch hell
Derry down down down derry down

Instrumental break

And now me good fellas adieu to you all
For Christmas is coming and I’m going to Glen Falls
And when I get there I’ll go out on a spree
For you know when I’ve money the devils in me
Derry down down down derry down
