Does anyone know the lyrics to the jig "Dublin Town"? One verse starts out "I would be goin' to Dublin Town, If I had new shoes and a velvet gown." Thanks.

Never heard of this song (and I'm a Dubliner), but it's quoted here as:

I would be going to Dublin town
If I had new shoes and a velvet gown
But since I have neither I'll drive me pigs
And fill my day gaily with songs and jigs

(Can't find any more of it on a search for "going to" and "dublin town" on Google.)

Thompson

Nor do I, another Dub, remember hearing it. Your sample has a whiff of a dandling song/nursery rhyme about it?

Regards

The above lyrics come from the John Thompson first grade piano book. I don't know if there are any others.
