Wexford Kiely Song Lyrics. Written and recorded by Johnny McCauley, aka ''Wexford Kiely'' , Sent to me by Patrick Burke. Johnny has written several other songs some of which are already on the site including Pretty Little Girl From Omagh.

The whispering shannon Lyrics

1

I left my home
In shanagolden
Near the quaint
Limerick
Town of adare
Though i left old shanagolden
My thoughts will
Always
Linger there

2

By the shannon waters
I would wander
With someone who
Will never leave my heart
Now in my lonelyness
I wonder
Just why we ever
Had to part

Chorus

Whispering shannon please tell me
As you on your way to the sea
Has she found someone new
Or is she pining
Is she lonesome
Just like me


3

They say the first love lasts for ever
And from your thoughts will never stray
Indeed again you will endevour
There miles betweeth in what they say


Chorus

Whispering shannon please tell me
As you on your way to the sea
Has she found someone new

Or is she pining
Is she lonesome just like me

4
They say the first love last’s for ever
And from your thoughts will never stray
Indeed again you will endevour
There miles betweeth me what they say

End

This is another slow country dance song from johnny’s lp. In the tumbleweeds. It is written and sung by johnny mc cauley

My crazy heart Lyrics
1
You crazy heart
Why can’t you be a rover
Like a heart that makes
You ache and pine
That from the start
You are a lonesome lover
You crazy heart
You crazy heart of mine
2
If fate has well
That she should find a new love
But fate will build
You never take apart
But some day soon you’r sure to find a true love
And then you’ll know
Youv’e been a crazy heart
3
You thought your dreams
Could never fall asunder
You built a world of sunshine and no rain
But now it seems
You worry and you wonder
If the sun will ever shine again
 
 
4
If fate has willed
To teach you find a new love
What fate will do you’l never take apart
But some day soon
You’ll surl’y find a
True love
And then you’ll know
Youv’e been a crazy heart:
End:

I'll do my own washing Song Lyrics
This country lively song Is sung by wexford kiely
On a single ‘45 from 1969.On
Denver records (southern music) and written
by the great singer and song writer johnny mc cauley:
 
There’s a girl named peggy bly
And she winks her pretty eye
And to get me to the altar is her aim
But i’m a happy guy
And ive got no wish to die
But i’m getting hitched to something just the same
Chorus
I’ll do my own washing
And my own cooking
And be ever happy and free
No mean old woman
Doing any cooking
It’s the life of the hobo for me
I’ll sing along with the sun and the rain
I’ll sing my songs in every highy way and plane
I’ll do my own washing and my own cooking
And be ever happy and free
2
Iv’e just got to make some ham
And iv’e got an ancient
Frying pan
Lost the label but there’s something in a can
And if steaming comes to me
That will be my laundry
I will wrap me in a blanket when ist then.
Chorus as above
3
So good bye billy bly
Iv’e been winking that yo’ud die
And you find some one who wants to settle down
But i love no one else but you
And i’m the only one for you
You can have me when you dig me from the ground
Chorus as above
 
4
And there’l be no one to tell me i know
For there’l be no somebody
I’ll get along
I’ll do my own washing and my own cooking
And be ever happy and free
I’ll do my own washing and my own cooking
And be ever happy and freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

The latchyco Song Lyrics Latchyco is another name for a wild devil.This song is sung by wexford kiely on a '45 single 1969 and it is written and produced by the great singer and song writer johnny mc cauley
Chorus
Well my brother he’s a latchyco
Although he is my twin
And where ever i go in
London town
I find i just can’t win
I get the blame for his misdeeds
No matter where i roam
Oh if i could find that latchyco
I’d send him right back home.
1
From kilburn up to hammersmith
From the bush to camden town
The barman and the governers
Seem to greet me with a frown
From the hollaway road
To cricklewood
I’m sure to hear them say
Get out of here you latchyco
They sent me on my way.
2
I was working down on the underground
On the new victoria line
When i went to draw my hard
Earned wage
I still had cause to find
They said we paid you yesterday
Sure yer face wev’e always known
Oh he’l have to go that latchyco
I’ll send him right back home:
Chorus as above:
3
I was walking down the edgware road
When who came on the scene
But a quare one and she grabbed at me
Saying darling where have ye been
But she should have been driving
On a broom
With a hatch face like a cone
Oh he’ll have to go that latchyco
I’ll send him right back home.
4
(spoken words)
Well i’ve been searching for a month or more
For that twin brother of mine
And what they say in the papers today
It seems like the end of the line
There’s a picture of a dark haired boy
With a story there below
My how that looks like me
But no ist the latchyco
(spoken words)
5
The story tells of a brave young man
Who ran in all alone
The burning mass of wrecking flames
That once was a happy home
He gave his life but not before
He set two children free
So now i know the latchyco is a better man than me
(sung)
Yes now i know the latchyco is a
Better man than meeeeee:
