DT Lyrics:





Subject: LYR REQ: Roisin
From: John in Brisbane

OH Roisin, my Roisin, I know you know just what I mean
And I feel love and sadness when I think of you Roisin,

Was sure it would be in the DT, but can't find it. Please don't embarrass me by pointing to an earlier thread, cos I didn't do that search.

Thanks
John

Well, John, forum search is getting harder, sao you can be excused. This one is close, but not exactly what you requested. Is it the one?
I don't know if the Roisin in this thread has anything to do with your song, but I thought I'd try to be helpful.

Joe, your generosity knows no bounds. Not the song I was looking for, but thank you for referring me back to the large Celtic thread. It served to remind me of the quality of input to this forum.

Kind Regards
John

You can find that song on the album Australia All over II, by the group Barleycorn. You probably will understand the words there.

Barleycorn also sing ROISIN on their album "My Last Farewell" (Dolphin Dara, 2002) which can be heard on YouTube. Here's my transcription:


ROISIN
As sung by Barleycorn

1. It's a long time now since first we met when I was but a child.
I felt you were just mine alone, for I loved you all the while.
In those days when I was oh so young, I could not understand
Why so many others loved you too and tried to take your hand.

CHORUS: Oh, Roisin, my Roisin, I know you know just what I mean,
And I feel love and sadness when I think of you, Roisin.

2. And down the years in words and song your lovers reminisced.
We dream our old familiar dreams of the lady in the mist.
Yet still today we will not ask what you want us to do.
Why do we hurt the ones we love and claim to love you too?

3. Oh, the years pass by as I grow old, but you remain still young.
There's one regret within my heart that we never were as one.
But one thing I can say for sure in all your future days:
You'll know the pain of love because we loved in different ways.


[I have been unable to discover who wrote this song. Several people have written songs called ROISIN.]

Does anyone know if sheet music is available for this melody?
