    This was written in memory of a former employee of Horizon Wind Energy that resigned last year. Those that know Pat know that he says he grew up in Ireland, but he resides in N.Y. … and he’s been sighted … sshhhhh:

    Paddy Boy

    Air – Danny Boy
    Dedicated to the folks of Tug Hill

    Oh Paddy boy, the wind turbines a screamin’
    From ridge to ridge, and on the plateaus high
    Their peace is gone, and they are all a-cryin’
    ’Tis you, ’tis you that goes, but they must bide.

    No deer they’ll see when summer’s in the meadow
    Their birds and bats hacked to pieces blow by blow
    No sleep they’ll get with the noise and flick’ring shadows
    Oh, Paddy boy, we surely do despise ye now.

    Some want to leave, but their properties are worthless
    So stay they must, but gagged they ne’er shall be
    The truth, we know, you’ll not likely ever confess
    But all will see your handiwork in their DVD

    They’ve lost, but others won’t be so quick to take your swill
    Tin Horns and Calicos will find you, that they will
    Where e’er you go, you’ll be hounded from vale to hill
    Be it in Berne or Knox or Rensselaerville.
