DT Lyrics:

The first I heard this song was a version perfomed on the Chieftains Tears of Stone album. Does anybody know of this song and can they forward me the lyrics?

Hi!

Go up to the top right hand box which says "Search the DigiTrad Database" enter "Shule Aroon" first and look at the responses. For an interesting variant, enter "Buttermilk" and look at the response "Buttermilk Hill."

These are not necessarily the Chieftains version. Remember, this is a folk song.

All the best, Dan

dermitt,

There are three songs in the DigiTrad Database that are probably related to the one you seek. They are listed as "Shule Aroon".

Try this, this, or this.

Someone who is not sneaking onto the 'Cat on work time might be able to search the multiple discussions of this song and its relatives on the Mudcat Forum.

Enjoy the song!

Roger in Baltimore

two more in DT: Shule Agra and Buttermilk Hill
Roger himself gives links at: the Shule Aroon thread to threads titled:
suil a ruin [sic]
Johnny has gone for a soldier
... shool la rue
Johnney has gone... thread
Historical discussion and samples of the variants of the lyrics make most of these threads worth browsing.

(PJ here, on Dave's computer)

dermitt- May I HIGHLY recommend you listen to the Mairin Fahy version of Siuil a Run, done with the group Reeltime. I have it on a Celtophile CD called "There Was A Lady" (Green Linnet Records). A little faster than traditionally done, but one of the best arrangements I've heard. If you can find it, let me know what you think.
