Subject: Lookin for Irish folk tunes lyrics
From: Rachel B.
Date: 31 Jul 99 - 01:42 PM

Hi guys! I searched for these songs on the database and didn't find them. Perhaps someone can help.........?

The first one goes, "I wish I was on that M-17, stone walls and the grass is green".........(chorus)

The second one is an upbeat song with a title of something like "The Claire County Ceili Band". I'm not sure about the word, 'Claire'...but I think that they it begins with a 'c'. It's definitely 'The________ County Ceili Band'.

I thank you all............as I have gotten a lot of lyrics through this forum. Very good responses.

Headin' for Mullaney's Harp and Fiddle in the Strip District (just outside of Pittsburgh, PA) tonite to enjoy some Celtic Rock with RED HAND PADDY!! Terrific band here in the 'Burgh!!! If anyone can get the lyrics to me before tonite, I'd be real pleased!!

Have a great weekend!

Hi Rachel Just got back from Ireland and brought some songbooks back with me. Couldn't find the lyrics your looking for. I'll keep my eyes peeled though. Have a good time tonight.

Subject: Lyr Add: N17 (from The Saw Doctors)
From: Brakn
Date: 31 Jul 99 - 09:10 PM

N17 is a Sawdoctors song!!!

Well I didn't see much future
When I left the Christian brother's school
So I waved it good-bye, with a wistful smile
And I left the girls in Tuam
And sometimes when I'm reminiscing
I see the prefabs and my old friends
And I know that they'll be changed or gone
By the time I get home again

Chorus
And I wish I was on the N17
Stone walls and the grass is green
Yes I wish I was on the N17
Stone walls and the grass is green
Traveling with just my thoughts and dreams

Well the ould fella left me to Shannon
Was the last time I traveled that road
And as we turned after Claregalway
I could feel the lump in my throat
As I picture the thousands of times
That I travelled that well worn track
And I know that things will be different
When ever I decide to go back

Now as I tumble down these highways
Or the filthy overcrowded trains
There's no-one to talk to in transit
So I sit there and daydream in vain
And behind all these muddled up problems
Of living on a foreign shore
I still see the twists and turns in the road
From the square to the town of the tribes

Regards Mick Bracken

Rachel, I guess it's "Clare County...". I don't know it however. Wish you luck to find it.

The second one may also be a Saw Doctors song...from their latest "...Sun Street" CD (The entire album title has slipped my mind and I don't have it near me since I'm still on vacation. I've been referring to it simply as Sun Street for too long.)

Joyce County Ceili Band

(I am pretty sure it is "Joyce" County...I know someone will correct me if I'm wrong)

Goodness, I should know this stuff!
