Paddy Lyr Req: Forty Years Ago? (5) RE: 17 Nov 98


Just for you !!

The Golden Jubilee

Way down in the county Kerry
In a place they call Tralee
A fine old couple they lived there
Called Kate and Pat Magee
They were going to have a party
For their Golden Jublilee
And Kate, says she, to Pat Magee
Come listen here to me


Put on your ould knee britches
And your coat of emerald green
Take off that hat me darlin' Pat
And put on your ould caubeen
Today's our golden wedding
And I want you all to know
Just how we looked when we were wed
50 years ago

Tis well do I remember
When we danced on the vilage green
You held me in your arms dear Pat
And called me your colleen
Your hair was like the raven's wing
But now its turning grey
Take off that hat, me darlin' Pat
And hear what I've to say


Tis well do I remember
When first I was your bride
In the little chapel yonder there
Where we sat side by side
Of good times we've had many
Of troubles we've had few
Take off that hat, me darlin Pat
And here's what you must do


Maybe there are more verses, but thats as far as my memory goes

This is a lively tune and if you can find someone who can play the accordian (*grin*) he/she could finish with a reel (The Sally Gardens come to mind)
