Never heard of Rita Connolly, so it probably isn't 'Same old man siting at the mill'.

Urs, I have the Rita Connolly CD, but haven't got the lyrics handy. Give me a couple of days (if nobody beats me to it). What a shame Rita Connolly isn't better known. Maybe people forget she's the singer on Shaun Davey's 'Granuaile' suite CD? (I believe she is also married ot Shaun.) - Susanne

Rita Connolly sings also on the 'Granuaille' LP. Great Voice isn't it? I would be very happy If someone would send me or even write down the lyrics!

Here you are:

SAME OLD MAN
(Trad)

Chorus:
Same old man workin' at the mill
Mill turns around of its own free will
With a hand in the hopper and the other in the sack
Ladies step forward and the gents fall back

Down flew an owl with its head all white
Lonesome day and a lonesome night
Thought I heard a pretty girl say
Court all night and you sleep next day

Well then said the raven as she flew
If I was a young one I'd have two
One for to fetch and the other for to sew
I'd have a string for my bow, bow, bow

And my old man's in Kalamazoo
And he don't wear no yes I do
First to the left and then to the right
This old mill grinds day and night

The notes on the 'Rita Connolly' album give it as an Appalachian song.

Oh please please someone post some chords to some of Rita's songs. The two mentioned above would be a good start and then 'Ripples in the rockpool'...
