OK, so I got Johnny McEvoy to dictate the lyrics to me. Might as well Share them Here they are:

LEAVES IN THE WIND
Johnny McEvoy

Old Rosie Atkinson lives all alone in her house at the end of our street.
She wears an old hat with a long silver pin and faded blue shoes on her feet.
The long flowery dress must have looked nice on the day her love marched away
To fight in the war to end all the wars in a cold land so far, far away.

CHORUS: Rosie, he's gone now. He's not coming home now like all those lonely young men.
The fathers and brothers, the sons and the lovers, they've fallen like leaves in the wind.

Now the war has gone past. He never returned. The years have now faded her eyes,
But the love in her heart is as warm and as strong as it was when he made her his bride,
In Flanders Field where red poppies grow from the hearts of many young men,
There sleeps Rosie's lover of long, long ago. She never did see him again. CHORUS

Now Old Rosie Atkinson lives all alone in her house at the end of our street,
And the children make fun of her long flowery dress and the faded blue shoes on her feet.
Though they laugh and they jibe at her funny old ways, she seems not to hear or to see.
She just dreams of the love she was never to know and the times that were never to be. CHORUS

Enjoy, Ed

I went to confession yesterday, and ended up talking with the Irish priest about Johnny McEvoy. He recommended this song, and also McEvoy's song about Michael Collins. I found "Michael" on YouTube, but I wasn't able to find a online recording of "Leaves in the Wind." Can anybody help me? All I have in my own library are greatest-hits recordings, and they don't have either song.

I did find a nice recording by Isla Grant of a song called Like Leaves in the Wind, but it's a totally different song.

Hi Joe,
If you search "Irishcountrymusic.com you will find Johnny's recording appears on 2 different double CD packages. One is called "Johnny McEvoy Celebration" and the other is Johnny McEvoy The Legendary Box Set. Both are priced at £12.99 plus a bit for postage. The Celebration pack is available in Dublin's Tower Records for 12.99 Euro, if you want to save on postage you can pick it up on your visit next month.
