Thread Name: Tune Req: For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name
Subject: RE: For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name
I wanted to sing this ravishing air with an intriguing title, but I had only heard it as an instrumental, so I wrote my own words to it. I don't have them immediately to hand, but it seems my idea for the reason not to tell her name was not so far removed from the original.

I am very grateful to you for the original words, you have made my day.
