Subject: Lyr Req: Forgotten Songs
From: Naemanson

I used Lyric Request for this thread but it could just as well have been any of the first four choices. I've learned a lot of songs over the years, as have many of you, and I've forgotten many songs too.

The other day I was trying to remember one of them, and I searched through my cellulose database hoping to find the chords and words. I just had the tune and a few words floating in my mind.

No luck.

That got me wondering about other songs I might have once known but now do not appear in the mental inventory.

I remember the tune and most of the words to 'I'd Like to Have a Mistress' but I cannot remember the chords. I used to play it a lot. I think it was written by Tommy Makem. I remember meeting him and thanking him for the song. I said I thought he probably thought of it as a throw-away song but that many people enjoyed hearing it. He laughed and said, "But it's my best song ever!"

I remember a song about an orchard in Ireland. The song relates a man's life as he lives near the orchard and how the important parts of his life intersect with that orchard. I can no longer remember the words, the tune or the chords.

Is there any help out there?

Aha! I knew I had something wrong. The song is by Robbie O'Connell.
