Subject: RE: Chord Req: My Old Man
The John McDermott song was written by Phil Coulter for the Furey Brothers after their father Ted (One of Irelands greatest fiddlers) passed away. The Fureys recorded it with Finbar doing the vocals. At a concert at the Cohn in Halifax I heard them singing it and I bought the tape from them at intermission so that I could learn it. John McDermott recorded it a few years later and does a splendid version. I always liked Finbars song best though because of the emotion that he packs in .
