Subject: Lyr Add: LAUGHING IRISH EYES
From: Brakn
Date: 14 Sep 99 - 04:55 AM

Just to hear your voice, I'd walk a mile, really walk a mile, if you walked with me
I'm so happy when I see you smile, really when you smile, this is what I see

There's a little devil dancin', in your laughing Irish eyes
And the little devil's dancin', right into my heart
There's a little bit of mischief, in your laughing Irish eyes
And it's telling Mr. Cupid, to sharpen up his dart
Oh, I swear on my honour, I'm a lad who's a goner
And to prove what eyes can do
You can put in the papers, that the boyfriend, bejabers!
Really wants to marry you
But before we start romancing, darlin' won't you put me wise
To the little devil dancin', in you laughing Irish eyes

(Music by Sam H. Stept - Words by Sidney Mitchell 1936)
From "Laughing Irish Eyes" a Republic Picture

Now Eileen O'Grady, the real Irish lady,
I'm longing to call her my own
I'll not be contented, until she has consented,
To be Mistress Barney Malone
I met this fair treasure, while walking for pleasure,
She looked up at me then she cried
Without any warning "The top of the morning"
And then up to her I replied

chorus
Come, come, beautiful Eileen,
Come for a drive with me
Over the mountain, down by the fountain
Over the high road and down by the low road
Make up your mind, don't be unkind
And we'll drive to Castlebar
To the road I'm no stranger
For you there's no danger
So just come along in my old jaunting car

Now Eileen said "No sir, with you I won't go, sir
Don't think it ungrateful of me
I'd rather go walking, than have people talking
You know what the story would be"
"No Eileen my jewel, don't treat me so cruel
To treat me this way is a shame
Give over your blarney
And say I'm your Barney
And don't keep me waiting in vain"

Ha! Just went to the trouble of typing it out - only to mind Brackn got there before me! That set looks like the one in "Walton's Treasury of Irish Song" where it appears without attribution. Anyone know when and where published?

One small point: I think the last line of the chorus is usually sung as: "So hop like a bird on me old jaunting car"

Walton gives it as "Eileen O Grady" - I think that's the usual name. Used ot be a great favourite of the Irish Tenor - "known and feared throughout the world"! It's very much in the Percy French vein - though he didn't write it. I'll try tracking it down later.

I listen this song as Eileen O'Grady on short version on the The Moving Cloud "Irish Music & Song" and on full version on compilation "My Irish Home Sweet Home" (Barney O'Leary). Very interesting this song traditional or no? Because on Moving Cloud credits write trad, but "My Irish Home Sweet Home" - Noreo

I've just been looking for the words to Eileen O'Grady and have found your emails of 1999. In the version that my mother-in-law sings are the words for the chorus:-

Come,come beautiful Eileen,
Come for a drive with me,
Over the mountain,down by the fountain,
Home through the valley, owe wouldn't it be lovely.
Make up your mind, don't be unkind
and we'll drive to Castlebar
To the road I'm no stranger
For you there's no danger,
So hop like a bird on me auld jaunting cart.

Sorry for such a late imput!! Watch this space 'cause I've made enquiries for the rest of the words from my Aunt-in-law for the words she is acquainted with which are bound to be different!!!
Bye, Howard

Who sings this, if not the Grehan Sisters? I bought one of a collection of folk songs, which my daughter decided she wanted and lost.
I find myself looking for some of the music, but keep hitting a brick wall.
Eileen O'grady, sung by female artists, apparently not the Grehan Sisters, and The Farmer's Cursed wife, also done by a female with about the same brough. Any suggestions?

D'LARD LIFTIN' ALBUM

Eileen O'Grady

Now Eileen O'Grady, a sweet island lady,
I'm longing to call her my own
I'll not be contented 'til she has consented
To be Mistress Barney Malone.
I met this fair treasure while walking for pleasure
She looked up at me then she cried
Without any warnin' AThe top of the morning'@
And then up to her I replied:

Chorus:
Come, come beautiful Eileen, come for a drive with me
Over the mountain and down by the fountain
Over the high road and down by the low road
Make up your mind, don't be unkind
And we'll drive to Castle Bar
To the road I'm no stranger, for you there's no danger
So up like a bird on my old jaunting car.

Now Eileen said, ANo sir, with you I won't go sir,
Don't think it ungrateful of me;
I'd rather go walkin' then have people talkin'
You know what my story would be.@
No Eileen, my jewel, don't treat me so cruel
To treat me this way is a shame
Give over your blarney and say I'm your Barney
And don't keep me waitin' in vain.

Chorus

But just a year later, when Eileen felt better
She came by and whispered to me
ANow Barney my darlin', 'tis early this mornin'
I want to discuss this with thee.
I'm ready for marriage, we'll drive in the carriage
And take in the view by the hill
'Tis thoughts of a home, down near the blue foam
But Barney Malone say you will.@

Chorus

To Brakn,
I really appreciate the words to "Little Devil Dancing." My great-grandmother sang it I guess. She was 100% Irish. Anyway, I know for sure my Mother sang it, and we did not know anyone else knew it but thought it was a lost song. I have been looking for it somewhere for a lifetime. Thank God for google and for this website, and that you know the song. There are more words that you gave than we knew so now I know all the song. Thanks a bunch.

Hello
I have a different third verse of Eileen O'Grady - from a recording made by Ottilie Patterson in the late 50s...

When at last she consented I felt quite contented
For to me twas a moment of bliss
As we drove through Killarney without any blarney
From Eileen a stole a sweet kiss
Be both sat together like birds of a feather
Well whisper I'll tell what was said
She promised begorrah to share joy and sorrow
So to her I'll sing when we're wed


Great to hear about a writer. I"m heading now to search him out.

This is my transcription from Spotify:


EILEEN O'GRADY
As sung by Josef Locke on "The Complete 1950's Masters" (2013)

1. There's a sweet little lady named Eileen O'Grady.
I wish I could call her my own;
And I won't be contented till she has consented
To be Mrs Barney Malone.
I first met this treasure out walkin' at pleasure
Alone on a bright summer's day.
Without any warnin' the top of the mornin'
I just said to her right away:

CHORUS: Come, come, beautiful Eileen, out for a drive with me,
Over the mountain and down by the fountain,
Home though the valley; dear, won't it be lovely?
Don't be unkind; make up your mind
On a drive to Castlebar.
To the road I'm no stranger; for you there's no danger,
So hop like a bird on me old jauntin' car.

2. Now, Eileen said, "No, sir; with you I won't go, sir.
Don't think it ungrateful of me,
But I'd rather go walkin' than have people talkin',
For you know what the story will be."
I then whispered, "Jewel, och! don't be so cruel.
To treat me this way is a shame.
Give over your blarney and say 'You're my Barney'
And don't keep me waiting in vain." CHORUS

3. When at last she consented, I felt quite contented.
For me, 'twas a moment of bliss.
As we drove through Killarney without any blarney,
From Eileen I stole a sweet kiss.
We both sat together like birds of a feather.
Well, whisper; I'll tell you what's said:
She promised, begorrah, to share all me sorrow,
So to her I'll sing when we're wed: CHORUS

EILEEN O'GRADY
As sung by Brendan O'Dowda & Ruby Murray on Ruby Murray's album "Anthology" (2005)

1. There's a sweet little lady named Eileen O'Grady.
I wish I could call her my own.
Sure I won't be contented till she has consented
To be Mistress Barney Malone.
Now, I first met this treasure out walkin' at leisure
Alone on a bright summer's day.
Without any warnin' the top of the mornin'
I just says to her right away:

CHORUS: Come, come, beautiful Eileen, out for a drive with me,
Over the mountain and down by the fountain,
Over the high road and down by the low road.

To the road I'm no stranger; for you there's no danger,
So hop like a bird on me old jauntin' car.

2. But then I said, "No, sir; with you I sha'n't go, sir.
Don't think it ungrateful of me.
Sure I'd rather be walkin' than have people talkin'.
You know how the story would be."
He then whispered, "Jewel, don't treat me so cruel.
To treat me like this is a shame.
Give over your blarney and come with your Barney.
Now don't have me pleadin' in vain." CHORUS TWICE

[O'Dowda sings verse 1 solo; Murray sings verse 2 solo; they sing the choruses together.]

WorldCat.org says there is a songbook called "Carlton Souvenir Song Book" which contains EILEEN O'GRADY. Bowling Green State University has a copy.

The British Library also has a copy of the sheet music. Will E. Cormack is identified as the songwriter.

100 Irish Songs (Book 2) is available there for about $6.00 American. I expect shipping will double that cost. Some good songs in the book, imo. 'Eileen O'Grady) is number 10 or 11.
