Do you have any information at all about the author? The places to look
are going to depend to some extent on _when_ the lyrics were written.  For
example, if we're talking about a 17-18th c. time-frame, then Berkeley's
collection of early-modern Irish literature may be useful. If we're
talking about someone contemporary, then a search for liner notes will be
more profitable.
