Thread Name: Lyr Req: Farewell Dearest Nancy (Mick Hanly)
Subject: Lyr Req: Mick Hanly's Farewell Dearest Nancy
Mick Hanly recorded an album in 1976 called 'A Kiss In The Morning Early'.
It, like most of my vinyl collection over the years has dissipated hither and thither.
I used to do a lot of the songs and tunes on that album; the title track, and the excellent finger-picked version he does of 'An tSean Bhean Bhocht'
Another beautiful song on that album is 'Farewell Dearest Nancy', and although I know there are as many versions of it, as there are variations on the title, it is specifically Mick's version I'm looking for.
If anybody has the album, or remembers the words (I think it's in O'Lochlainn, but I don't have a copy of that at the minute, neither), would they ever be so kind as to post them here, as I'm dying to have another crack at doing it again.
Thanks in advance...
