Lament

The world feels a little empty

Now she’s gone

Laid to rest in Lowertown cemetery

Her smile was like the sun

And I listened to her playing

Flying fiddle O

Her sister Amy squeezebox

Lively music O

 

And just as her life is ended

And her body in the grave

News of a man arrested

Justice for the brave

This murder speaks for millions

For all those left to die

Whose names and stories usually

Never meet our eye

 

This a total innocence

Attacked upon the road

Loveliness and beauty

Talent goodness knows

All the things that make up life

Children music sport

All were found in Ashling

In her death all are hurt
