Newry Town / Rusty Gulley

NIGHT FALL

Newry Town/Rusty Gulley

Also known as The Newry Highwayman and Newlyn Town (Roud 490), this song is sometimes referred to as a ‘goodnight ballad’, and tells of the capture and demise of an otherwise rather cheerful highway robber. It’s been put together here with the delightful tune, Rusty Gulley.
