  1. Denny Hickey from Gortnacreha he died far away
    In Birmingham in England he lived his last night and day
    But he is at home in Cullen to stay
    In the cemetery in the Village his last remains lay
    The Hickeys of Gortnacreha are well liked and well known
    And Denny in Cullen is now among his own
    The Cullen where he went to school as a boy
    He would have remembered old memories with joy
    In Cullen where he had lived his younger years
    By friends and old neighbors and family he would have been farewelled in tears
    His yearn for adventure took him to elsewhere
    For to experience life in the big World out there
    Death from suffering does bring a final release
    The good man Denny Hickey may he rest in peace.
