And if it's not that one then search for LOVLYLEE, a different song (The Banks of My Own Lovely Lee). Both have tunes in the datavase. My mother grew up at Inverleigh, so I keep a special eye out for songs about the Lee, Lea or Leigh Rivers which are aberrations of my family name. Regards, John

I learned this tune from Nic Jones about 20 years ago. I don't know if he ever recorded it. The words are very similar to one version in the DT, but the link to that MIDI file is broken, so I don't know if it's the same tune. It's a deceptively simple tune; I've never been able to make up my mind whether it's in the key of D or Am. One way or another, it is one of the loveliest of all tunes.

Thanks, Jeri. That looks right now, but it's still not valid ABC, because when you copy it out of Netscape and paste into an abc program, all the lines start with a space, so none of the fields are recognised, and you can't play it or display it as music. Anyone who wants to play the tune will have to go through it and edit out all the spaces that come before the field identifiers.

It seems to be a problem with Netscape only. Explorer works fine.

I know Banks of the Dee as a 6/8 (see DT BNKSDEE), whereas Green Mossy Banks of the Lee is in 3/4. The tune I know is different to the one Phil Taylor posted: mine is almost identical to the tune I posted here for CAROLINE AND THE YOUNG SAILOR BOLD.

Does that help, or muddy the waters still further?

The one Martino was looking for here, and someone else more recently, is the tune to The Banks of the Lee (Where true lovers meet down beneath the green bower). The DT says

filename[ BNKSLEE
Tune file : BNKSLEE

But the 'Click to play' brings up page not found.

I can do you the tune at some stage if it's disappeared.

The unofficial anthem of Cork city in Ireland is "The banks of my own lovely Lee", commonly known in mockery of the Cork accent as "De Benks".

But that can't be the one you're after, because either you were born in Cork, in which case you know it from birth, or you weren't, in which case you wouldn't be caught dead singing it.

Did I mention that I'm from Dublin ;o)?

OK, this gets really confusing. Too many songs with the same or similar titles. Here is the song in the Digital Tradition. No source is identified. There's no entry for this song in the Traditional Ballad Index, and the listing at folktrax.org is sketchy and confusing. As stated above, the DT MIDI doesn't work for this song. It seems to me to be a composed song, I'd guess from the late 19th or early 20th century. Does it appear in and songbooks or recordings?
Silly Wizard recorded a song with this title on Live Wizardry and maybe others - is it this one?
Can anybody identify the source of the DT lyrics?
-Joe Offer-

    The Banks of the Lee (from the Digital Tradition).

    When two lovers meet down beside the green bower
    When two lovers meet down beneath the green tree
    When Mary, fond Mary, declared to her lover
    "You have stolen my poor heart from the Banks of the Lee"

    Chorus
    I loved her very dearly, so true and sincerely
    There was no one in this wide world I loved better than she
    Every bush, every bower, every sweet Irish flower
    Reminds me of my Mary, on the banks of the Lee.

    "Don't stay out late, love, on the moorlands, my Mary
    Don't stay out late, love, on the moorlands from me"
    How little was our notion when we parted on the ocean
    That we were forever parted from the Banks of the Lee

    (Chorus)

    I will pluck her some roses, some blooming Irish roses
    I will pluck her some roses, the fairest that ever grew
    And I'll leave them on the grave of my own true lovely Mary
    In that cold and silent churchyard where she sleeps 'neath the dew

    Chorus^^^

That set is basically what is routinely sung in Ireland now. I think unscrambling the Lee/lea versions (not to mention Matilda - a most unIrish sounding lady) is not possible.

Thanks for the nice tune. I believe it will make a nice addition to my dulcimer repertoire.

As posted, it's in the key of G, but it starts on A (the note A, not the chord A), ends on A, and has a long, high note which is an A. It's a Dorian tune, because the second note of the scale is playing the role we usually assign to 'do.'

Thanks Joe. That's the version I sing. Although with a few slight differences.

The tune I use is the same as the popular tune for "Kevin Barry.

The Silly Wizard version is slightly different from the one quoted above. Their version is below. (Note: In the chorus it sounds more like "Reminds me on my Mary, on the banks of the Lee" but I have left "of", which makes more sense to a Englishman!)


THE BANKS OF THE LEE
Silly Wizard Version

Where true lovers meet beneath the green bower
When true lovers meet out beneath the green tree
And Mary, fond Mary, she says unto her true love
"You have stolen my young heart by the Banks of the Lee"

Chorus
For I loved her very dearly, most truly and sincerely
There is no one in this wide world I loved more than she
Every bush and every bower, every wild Irish flower
Reminds me of my Mary, on the banks of the Lee.

"Don't stay out too late, love, on the moorlands, my Mary
Don't stay out too late, love, on the moorlands for me"
But its little was my notion when we parted by the ocean
That we were forever parting by the Banks of the Lee

(Chorus)

I will pull my love some roses, some wild Irish roses
I will pull my love some roses, the fairest to see
And I'll lay them on the graveside of my own dear darlin' Mary
In that cold and silent grave where she sleeps 'neath the dew

(Chorus)

Dick, when posting links, it's common courtesy to state what it's a link to. Here, that would mean which of the four songs and who's singing it--especially if it's your usual masked self-promotion (as in the present circumstance).
