Does anyone have the words and possibly the guitar chords to this classic Tommy Makem song. If so can you post them at this site or e-mail it to me at ron_murphy98@hotmail.com. Thank-you very much.

Here's the lyrics:

RAMBLES OF SPRING

There's a piercin' wintry breeze
Blowin' through the budding trees,
And I button up my coat to keep me warm,
But the days are on the mend
And I'm on the road again
With me fiddle snuggled close beneath my arm.

CHORUS: I've a fine felt hat
And a strong pair of brogues.
I have rosin in me pocket for me bow,
And me fiddle strings are new,
And I've learned a tune or two,
So I'm well prepared to ramble. I must go.

I'm as happy as a king
As I catch a breath of spring,
And the grass is turning green as winter ends,
And the geese are on the wing,
And the twiddles start to sing,
And I'm going down the road to see my friends. CHORUS

I have friends in every town,
As I ramble up and down,
Makin' music at the markets and the fairs,
To the donkeys in the creels,
And the farmers makin' deals,
And the yellow-headed tinker sellin' wares. CHORUS

Here's to health to one and all,
To the big and to the small,
To the rich and poor alike and foe and friend,
And when we next meet again,
May our foes all turn to friends,
And may peace and joy be with you until then. CHORUS

I am looking for the lyrics for the Irish song Rambles of Spring. Tommy Makem and the Clancy Brothers recordered it (among others). I have most of the words down (and all the chords) but a couple of words still evade me.

Thanks

Brian

If it's the one I'm thinking of, I know this one... Is the chorus "I've a fine felt hat and a strong pair of brogues, I have rosin in me pocket for me bow; and me fiddle strings are new, and I've learnt a tune or 2, so I'm well prepared to ramble and must go?"

[G]There's a piercing wintry breeze
Blowing[F] through the[C] budding[G] trees
And I[G] button up my coat to keep[D] me warm
But[G] the days are on the mend
And I'm[F] on the[C] road a[G]gain
With my fiddle snuggled[D] close beneath my[G] arm

[G]I've a fine, felt hat

And the grass is turning green as winter ends
And the geese are on the wing
And the thrushes start to sing
And I'm headed down the road to see my friends

Chorus

I have friends in every town
As I wander up and down
Making music at the markets and the fairs
Through the donkeys and the creels
And the farmers making deals
And the yellow headed tinkers selling wares

Chorus

Here's a health to one and all
To the big and to the small
To the rich and poor alike and foe and friends
And when I return again
May our foes have turned to friends
And may peace and joy be with you until then
