Subject: rising of the moon- different words
From: GUEST,Allan S.
Date: 30 Jan 00 - 08:41 PM

Does anyone know the name and the rest of the words to this song sung to the tune of the Irish song The Rising of the Moon?

As down the hill I went one morn,
A lovely maid I spied.
Her hair was bright as the dew that fell
All in some velvet ----?

CHORUS: “And where go ye, fair maid?” said I.
She raised her eyes of blue
And smiled and said, “The boy I wed
I’m to meet in the foggy dew.”

"Rising of the Moon", traditionally, has the context of rebellion, conspiracy and the use of pikes to restore Irish freedom. This may be an earlier iteration of the same tune (tunes do that often enough!) but are you sur eit is called the "Rising of the Moon"? The only non-militant reference tot he "Rising of the Moon" that I am aware of is the first Pickle song in the Mudcat Songbook, called "Your Pickle Glows At Night", q.v..

But it's not about a maiden, anyway so it can't be the same thing !!

I know the song, THE RISING OF THE MOON, Pikes and all. This is the same tune though. Other verses as follows:

Go hide your blooms, ye roses red, and droop, ye lilies fair,
For ye must fade this very day before a maid so fair.
I said, “Fair maid, will ye be my bride?” (rest missing)

As down the hill I went one morn, a-singing I did go.
As down the hill I went one morn, the answer sweet and low:
“Yes, I will be your own sweet bride, and I know that you'll be true.”
Then inside my arms, all her charms were hidden from the foggy dew.

Any ideas on this one?

I think the tune must have been very popular and used for a lot of songs- isn't it the same one as "The Wearin' of the Green"? I seem to remember these foggy dew love song words being posted before--try a search of the forum if they aren't in the database.

I've heard "The Rising of the Moon" sung to two very different melodies. One of them is the same as "The Wearin' of the Green", an upbeat reel in a major key. The other tune is more like a slow air, and probably modal.

I've also heard two different melodies for ROTM, probably the same ones Jacob B has heard, but for the life of me, I can't find a way to sing Allan S's lyrics to either of them. I can't make the meter fit.

Sorry, wrong song. Not THE RISING OF THE MOON but THE FOGGY DEW. Just found a recording by Patrick Galvin Songs of the Easter rising Liner notes "Set to the tune of an old traditional Love song. New words by Rev. P O'Neill. New words 1st verse as follows:

As down the glen one Easter morn to a city fair rode I,
And Ireland’s lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by.
No pipe did hum. No battle drum did sound its loud tattoo,
But the angelus bell o’er the Liffey’s swell rang out through the foggy dew.

What is the name of the original love song?

THE FOGGY DEW
Fr. O'Neill

'Twas down by the glen one Easter morn,
To a city fair rode I,
When Ireland's lines of marching men
In squadrons passed me by,
No pipe did hum and no battle drum
Did sound its dread tattoo.
But the Angelus bell o'er the Liffey's swell
Rang out in the foggy dew.

Right proudly high over Dublin town
They hung out a flag of war;
'Twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky
Than at Suvla or Sudel Bar.
And from the plains of Royal Meath
Strong men came hurrying through,
While Britannia's sons with their long ranging guns
Sailed in from the foggy dew.

'Twas England bade our wild geese go
That small nations might be free;
Their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves
On the fringe of the grey North Sea.
But had they died by Pearse's side
Or fought with Valera true,
Their graves we'd keep where the Fenians sleep,
'Neath the hills of the foggy dew.

The braves fell, and the solemn bell
Rang mournfully and clear
For those who died that Eastertide
In the springing of the year.
And the world did gaze in deep amaze
At those fearless men and true
Who bore the fight that freedom's light
Might shine through the foggy dew.

Gather 'round me, chillun-


titles are NOT the things to search for. words and phrases ARE. If you search for [in the foggy dew], you'll find (as the third hit):


THE FOGGY DEW (Irish 2)

Over the hills I went one day, a lovely maid I spied
With her coal black hair and her mantle so green.
An image to perceive.
Says I, "Dear girl, will you be my bride
And she lifted her eyes of blue
She smiled and said, "Young man I'm to wed
I'm to meet in the foggy dew."

Over the hills I went one morn, a-singing I did go.
Met this lovely maid with her coal-black hair,
And she answered soft and low:
Said she, "Young man, I'll be your bride,
If I know that you'll be true."
Oh, in my arms, all of her charms
Were casted in the foggy dew.

Note: Still yet another completely different Foggy Dew. This was
the basis for the Irish revolutionary version. Great tune. RG
