Subject: Lyr Req: Lyric/Song Request - Makem & Spain Bros.
From: GUEST

Hullo - I went last night to a concert of the Makem and Spain Brothers (brilliant, by the way), and they had one song in particular that I quite liked but cannot for the life of me find the title or the lyrics. They introduced the song with a story about their family coming to the US from Ireland, and that their uncle died at 29, supposedly from a broken heart at having left Ireland. The song itself was about wanting to go back to Ireland. I'm sorry that this is so very vague, but it was a lovely song and I would love to know what it is (and what the lyrics are)!

Thank you very much!

Any type of lyric or more context would be a help

I'm sorry that I'm so vague about this, my brain is not cooperating with me today. There was, however, certainly a part about joining them in 'welcoming Paddy home'. Does that help at all?

Is this the song?

WELCOME POOR PADDY HOME 3/4 (Capo on 5th fret)

D      A       G    D   
I am a true born Irishman
D         A         D
I'll never deny what I am
D              A            G          D
I was born in a sweet Tipperary town
D             A        D
Three thousand miles away

-Chorus-
D         A       D
So hurray, me boys, hurray
D             A              G  A
No more do I wish for to roam
D                 A              G        D
For the sun it will shine in the harvest time
D               A      D
For to welcome poor Paddy home

D                A      D
Now the girls they are gay and frisky
D              A       G A
They'll take you by the hand
D               A           G          D
Saying Jimmy mo chroi would you come home with me
D                A        D
For to welcome poor Paddy home

-Chorus-

Well, in came the foreign nation
And scattered all over the land
The horse and the cow, and the goat, sheep and sow
Fell into the stranger's hand

-Chorus-

Now Scotland can boast of the thistle
And England can boast of the rose
And Paddy can boast his old Emerald Isle
Where his dear little shamrock grows.

-Chorus-

That is indeed it! Thank you so very much! I am certainly in awe that you managed to figure out what I meant from my ridiculously vague description.

Happy to help, there are more verses than that however. It is a great song.

The Makem and Spain Brothers are truly The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem reborn to the earth.
