Great song. Do it frequently with my Accordion friend. I do have the words and will wait a bit in case someone has it already typed out to post. If this threads gets to the bottom with no help for you I'll get to it and type them out for you.

Here you go Kenny. I hope I have it correct. If not I think I'm fairly close. Isla does great music. I believe she is in St. John's Newfoundland preforming or has just finished.

THE OLD ACCORDION MAN
As sung by Isla Grant

Let me tell you a story of someone I know,
Someone that I met, many long years ago.
He's played music for many all over this land,
And he's special to me, the old accordion man.

He's played reels for the dancing, for young and for old.
He's had stories to tell, as his memories unfold.
And he's traveled the road, and I now understand,
Why he's special to me, the old accordion man.

CHORUS: He'll play songs that will take you away back in time.
Like Maggie, Dark Island, and Mother of Mine.
But of all the fine medleys, and songs he can play,
Dark Lochnagar stays in my heart today.

Many years have gone by, but I still hear the sound.
As he played on the stage, with the band all around.
And his music has grown, as he's traveled the land,
He's respected by all the old accordion man.

CHORUS

Thank you for that, Beer. Its one of the many songs that I"ve been too lazy to transcribe for myself. The words that you didn't get in the last line of the chorus are 'Dark Lochnagar.'
                            Regards, Donal
