Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Darby Kelly
Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Darby Kelly
In this thread, Nigel Parsons says the song can be found in The National Song Book, volume 1. I wonder if Nigel or some other good preson might be able to send me a scan or a MIDI of the tune, and post the lyrics from the songbook.
Here are a couple of other songs that mention Darby Kelly:
Digging for Gould
Darby Kelly below in Kilkenny did live...
Boiled Beef and carrots:
"Boiled beef and carrots, boiled beef and carrots.
That's the stuff for your 'Darby Kell', makes you fat, and it keeps you well.
Don't live like vegetarians, on food they give to parrots,
From morn till night, blow out your 'kite' on boiled beef and carrots! "
