Thread Name: ADD: Irish songs (lots of songs here)
Subject: Seeking Irish Lyrics
This list was in the Help Forum. I wondered if anybody might be able to help with this list. I'll add line breaks and clean it up a bit.

Subject: trouble finding lyrics

I've recently become interested in Irish folk music and I have been racking my memory for the lyrics and melodies of songs that my grandmother used to sing to me. I'm happy to report that your website has been of tremendous help as well as my college's library. However there are still some songs that I just can't find. I can remember the melodies and thankfully I had the sense to write down the titles. Unfortunately I didn't have the sense to write down the words and thus have forgotten some of the lyrics. I am tired of mumbling through them. Please help. Following is a list of song titles and first lines (I think there're right). Bear with me because the list is quite long. Please help me find the rest of these songs.

Thank you, Rebecca

I guess that's the longest single list of requests I've seen. I'll look around and see what I can find, and change the ones I found into clickable links. Anybody else?
