Come all ye Roman Catholics and pray you will be near, And likewise pay attention and I'll not detain you long, Concerning Father McFadden who lies in Lifford Jail,, He was remanded there for trial, the judge could find no bail. The day he was arrested was a Sunday after Mass, It was Inspector Martin, the man who did arrest, He caught the collar by the priest with a broadsword in his hand, Says he, "Your are my prisoner, sir, and you must come along". The congregation seen their priest arrested at the door, And David being among the flock, he did one stone procure, He stuck the stone into a sling and my the Lord's command, He killed Inspector Martin on the ground where he did stand. They put Martin on a stretcher and to barracks they did go, To see them walkinng down the road, it was a lovely show, The congregation booed at them, 'twas glorious for to tell, And to see a sub-Inspector on a door going off to hell. The Devil met them on the road, and he took him by the hand, Says he, "Inspector Martin, I've been waiting for you long, You being a worthy officer, and you've done your duty well, And now I'm going to promote you to the burning pits of Hell". Adieu to Ballyshannon, will I never see you more, And many's the happy day I spent along Bundoran's shore, To my wife and family, I said farewell, And now I'm away and I'm bound to stay in the burning pits of hell.
