|JB3||Lyr Req: The Coolin / Oh, Give Me My Coolin (10)||RE: Words of irish song||07 Sep 98|
I heard a tune called "The Coolin" when in Ireland some 20 years ago. The story told about it was that a man lay dying and the priest was on his way for the last rites, but the devil, knowing how the priest loved music, waylayed him and played this tune on his fiddle. The priest, enchanted with the tune, lingered to hear it, so that the man died unshrived (sp?), and the devil got his soul.
