It looks like that was good attendance, even though it was Labor Day. I'm glad the singaround is going well.

I had three gatherings that day and couldn't be there. I'll be back.

"There was actually at least one other song sung after Joe's official close, but I don't remember what song it was." Felipa, I sang a few lines of the Phil Ochs song, Links on the Chain, but maybe that's not what you're thinking of. If anyone can remember a full song that came after the close, I'll be happy to edit it into the list. I have made the other corrections.

"Comments and corrections always welcome."

I sang Out of the Window at the 21-22 June 2021 session. I did sing the version which is in the DT under the title Our Wedding Day. It is not the same song as, is not "aka", "She Moved through the Fair". The songs have some relation, much discussed in a thread on Mudcat*. But Pádraic Colum just used one verse of Out of the Window in "She Moved through the Fair". *https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=869#3572943

Joe Offer sang the song described as "Here's to You" at this week's song circle. According to the DT, the song by the late Alan Bell is entitled When First We Met. "Here's to you," makes me think of Tom Paxton's "Ramblin' Boy". Most recordings do refer to the song as "So Here's to You".

I've also heard "When First We Met" aka "So Here's to You" called "The Parting Glass"; and that could so easily be confused by a popular song of the same name ("Of all the money that e'er I spent I've spent it in good company ..."

I thought it worth clarifying just which parting song Joe sang.

chorus:
So here's to you, and our time together.
I will share with you a parting glass,
And bid adieu with some smile and laughter,
Our time apart will be short, and pass.

There was actually at least one other song sung after Joe's official close, but I don't remember what song it was.

Subject: RE: an Buachaillin Donn at Mudcat singaround
From: Felipa
Date: 23 Jun 21 - 03:06 PM

I didn't attend on 14 June, but if "Buachaillin dhoun" was indeed sung in Irish, than the title should be spelled "An Buachaillín Donn" (the brown-haired lad) - "Dhoun" is an Anglicised spelling. The song also known as "Mo Bhuachaillín Donn", my brown-haired boy, which is sung mainly in English. This site mistakenly translates the title as "the fair-haired boy". Donn means brown; fair haired would be "bán" or "fionn".
https://www.irish-folk-songs.com/mo-bhuachailliacuten-donn-lyrics-and-chords.html

same song https://comhaltas.ie/music/detail/an_buachaillin_donn

Mudcat has the same song posted as "BOUCHALEEN DHOUN" but that is not Irish spelling; it is a rough transliteration.

I've now convinced myself that it was this song which was sung at the mudsing in question, a song in English with a few words in Irish Gaelic included.

[I have edited the song list in accord with this post. Thanks! Gerry]

Subject: ADD: Help Me Make It through the Zoom (PattyClink)
From: pattyClink
Date: 08 Jun 21 - 11:16 AM

With apologies to Mr. K, here are the extra verses sung at the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround celebration of 1 year of online gatherings.

HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE ZOOM
(Patty Clink)

Now it's Monday on the Zoom, and I don't have my song chose,                                                        
But you let me babble on, kindly cohost crew and Joe.

Make my audio do right, though I have no earthly clue                                                
As I suck up all my time, help me make it through the Zoom.

        I don't care if I mumble, sing words you can't understand                                                
        Let the devil take the title, Lord, I just love to make you guess
                                                        
They say folksong's dead and gone, and for us there is no room                                                
But we prove them wrong each week, help me make it through the Zoom,
We're a very special group, help us make it through the Zoom.

Noreen, Casey, Mrrzy, Dave; Arlene, Gerry, Monique, Gayle,                                                         
Blessings on you and dear Joe, you help us make it through the Zoom.

Mudcat Time
to the tune of Summertime

Mudcat time, and the zoomin' is easy
Folks are hummin' and the singin' is fine
Well Joe Offer's here, and we're all so good lookin'
So mute, little 'Catters, your number's assigned

Now ev'ry Monday, we all rise up singin'
From around the world, we laugh and we cry
For some it's mornin', and for others it's evenin'
Till Joe sends us off with some sweet lullabye

Mudcat time, and the helpers are busy
Thanks to Casey, Mrzzy, Dave and Arlene
Gayle and Gerry, et aussi cher Monique
And last but not least, Dawn and Noreen

Mudcat time, and the zoomin' is easy
Folks are hummin' and the singin' is fine
Well Joe Offer's here, and with gas we are cookin'
So sing, little 'Catters, time to shine!
