The Towering Hills Of Currow

A Land Mark Near

This village of ours

Its sloping hill

Peeps over towers

A sunny peak

Bedecked with flowers

The Towering Hills of Currow.

 

Chorus:

Here’s to Currow in the Vale

Sheltered snugly from the gale

May fame and fortune never fail the towering hills of Currow.

 

No matter where you walk the soil

If you travel mile by mile

There is not a spot will you beguile

Like the Towering Hills of Currow

 

Chorus:

Here’s to Currow in the Vale

Sheltered snugly from the gale

May fame and fortune never fail the towering hills of Currow.

 

The boys are active brave and strong

They could dance a jig or sing a song

And light on foot they trip along

Across the hill of Currow

 

Chorus:

Here’s to Currow in the Vale

Sheltered snugly from the gale

May fame and fortune never fail The Towering Hills of Currow.

 

Its maidens are gentle like a dove

Full of virtue truth and love

Its’ like a gift from heaven above

To take a girl from Currow

 

Chorus:

Here’s to Currow in the Vale

Sheltered snugly from the gale

May fame and fortune never fail The Towering Hills of Currow.

  

The men are all from 6’- 4” to 7’- 6”

And sometimes more

It’s very few would stand before

A football team from Currow

 

Chorus:

Here’s to Currow in the Vale

Sheltered snugly from the gale

May fame and fortune never fail The Towering Hills of Currow.

 

Sure its sloping hill is surely high

To climb its top is worth a try

Then you’ll remember till you die

The Towering Hills of Currow

 

Chorus:

Here’s to Currow in the Vale

Sheltered snugly from the gale

May fame and fortune never fail The Towering Hills of Currow.
