Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: The Green Fields of Canada
Subject: The Green Fields of Canada.
Does anyone have the words and music for this song ? It begins:- Farewll to the groves of Shillelagh and shamrock, Farewell to the girls of Old Ireland all round.

It's an emigration song, but that's as much as I can garner. There's also mention of the departing of journeymen tailors and fiddlers "who flaked out the old mountain reels." Annraoi
