TRUE DOCUMENTED STORY OF AN INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED IN 1910, JUST OUTSIDE OF THE VILLAGE OF CAPPAWHITE, IRELAND.
----------------------------------

 

There's a little village in Ireland's south
Goes by  the name of Cappawhite
Not everyone has heard of this place
So it's here i'll put you right

A mere six miles from Tipperary town
Cappawhite nestles silent and serene
But in 1910 on a dark country road
Something was to change this tranquil scene

The people of Cappawhite were in awe
Of this frightening supernatural mystery
When Tomas Fahey, back in 1910
Set a scene that was forged in history

As Thomas Fahey rode his bycicle home
Just outside of Cappawhite
A black mass appeared on his handlebars
Gave Thomas Fahey such a fright

It stayed pulsating, as Thomas prayed
Then it quickly shot off up the lane
And as he peddled to get away
Terrifying thoughts rattled through his brain

Although people were surperstitious then
The superstition has lasted down the years
'Cause this story's been documented many times
Of the demon that comes, then dissapears

So if you're ever travelling there
On the dark roads outside of Cappawhite
Make haste and carry on you're way
Or you may just see the demon of the night
