I'm looking for the lyrics to this song. I heard part of it recently on The Irish in America show that aired on CBC. What I remember from it goes like this:

Oh and come with me and I will treat you decent
I will sit you down and I will fill your can
And along the street all the friends I meet
Say there goes Muldoon he's a solid man.

I'm not even sure of the title. Any help would be appreciated, thanks Den.

I have it on at least 2 CDs at home. If nobody's posted the words by the time I get online at home tonight, I'll post them then. Great song, BTW.

This is a New York City vaudeville song that was performed by Harrigan & Hart. It later was carried to Ireland and went into tradition. A few people have recorded it including Mick Moloney, who he tells me he may be doing so again this year.

I'm sure there has been a thread about Muldoon... I think started by me when I was looking into it.

All the best,
Dan Milner

Thanks, Dan, good memory.*BG*

I just put it in the filter with the age set on two years and voila! Here's the thread you started with the words included.

Thanks to Kat and Dan. I belive it was on the Mick Maloney album that I originally heard the song and then when I watched the show the other night I just caught the end of the song. Its amazing how things come back to you and I couldn't get it out of my head for days and was singing it so much that the kids joined in with me on a trip out in the truck the other day. If memory serves, the verses and chourus have the same melody. Am I right in that? Maybe Dan would know. Thanks again Den.

Does anyone have the Inishowen (Inis Eoghain) version with the first verse in Irish, the rest in English (the way I heard it, anyway)?

No, Philippa. That would be a great delight to hear.

Speaking of Inishowen, have you looked at... http://sites.netscape.net/folkmusic/inishowenseminar

That web-site is more than I bargained for!

On the subject of Muldoon; Don Meade did an article on the song and others associated with it in the (I think) New York Review of History - I have it by me but have put it somewhere sensible and characteristically only start looking when I've started writing. I'll come back to this with real information when I find it.

Don Meade very kindly gave me a copy of his excellent article. It was in New York Irish History.

Speaking about Ned Harrigian, Bob Conroy and I have worked up a Harrigan song and, if we get bold, we will uncork it in Inishowen. Harrigan (1845-1911) grew up on the Lower East Side his writing is a first-hand report.

All the best,
Dan

Hi Georgina,

there are several versions by Mick Moloney

blue clickies (links) @ other thread

The book should contain a cd which has the song on it - but be careful, there is a cd without the book by the same name (also by Mick Moloney) that comes without the song.

Best
Ernest
