The student bold

A student bold from Abbyfeale
Who feared no Ghost nor Ghoul
Hitched home one night from Dublin
Where he did go to school

The night was dark and eerie
No moon or stars in the sky
It was now past the midnight hour
As the cars did pass him by

"Will I be here all night" he moaned
He was somewhere past Mountrath
I spent my train fare on booze
I should never have done that

Just then he saw two headlights flash
A car had halted near
He took the seat by the drive kind
He was now of good cheer

Then he saw, as the car moved on
The drivers’ eyes shone strange
The student bowed his head and asked the Lord
His circumstance to change

"I was a drunken driver"
The man at the wheel did say
A drink too many has me doomed
To drive this motorway

I ride this highway endless nights
Seeking students well
Those who spent their train fare on the booze
And I carry them off to Hell

The student bold dashed from the car
And spent the night in a barn
Don’t spend your train fare on booze
Is the moral of this yarn

This scary part delighted me: "I ride this highway endless night Seeking students well Those who spent their train fare on the booze And I carry them off to Hell" I have no idea why, but I loved this part.
