messenger boy lyrics – christy moore

(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)
