Christy Moore – Messenger Boy lyrics

(Composed by Christy Hennessy)

I'm goin' to saddle up me old grey mare,
I'm goin' to ride through the night,
Without a worry or a care.

I'm a messenger boy, bringing my love to you.

I see the light in the bedroom,
I pray to God that I didn't come too soon.

Two big dogs and a man shouts "Who goes there ?"
I've ridden through the cold and the wind and the rain and the frost,
And the snow and I'm love and I do not feel the pain.

I'm a messenger boy, bringing my love to you.

(Fade out / ad lib vocals etc)
