Mick Lowe Lyr Req: The Three-Leafed Shamrock (27) RE: Can you ID this Irish Song? 29 Oct 00

Hi again
Sorry for the delay in responding but I was awaiting a reply from the lady requesting the lyrics.. turned out to be "Shamrock from his dear mother's grave", so a big thanks for that Mick (all she wants now is to know who has recorded it... some people want the moon).

As for Donegal Danny I was looking out for the music as I've obviously heard a "different" version as none of the chords in the other threads fit to the tune I have in my head, hence having the tadpoles would be useful.

Okay Noreen where is the poetry in your soul?... only joking.. I must admit I don't think I'd fancy a far from healthy plant turning up on my doorstep, I have enough of them in the garden as it is. It does however seem to be a favourite topic amongst the song writing fraternity (must be the symbolism).. I'm reminded of "It was only a bunch of violets..", similar thoughts spring to mind of a squashed flower, caked in the blood of the unfortunate soldier boy, being presented to his love on her wedding day..

What I do find rather sad is the number of emails I get from people asking me to find songs that were sung by now departed relatives, that they never thought to record in some form before they passed away, but perhaps I ought to start a new thread about that.

Thanks again for your help
