I sing it a bit differently than that version, more like one recorded by Davy Hammond in the 1950's. I think I may have posted it to the forum in the past.

I don't know whether GUEST has found her song or not. There are many songs titled 'Irish girl'. I am looking for the lyrics to a song with this title sung by De Dannan on 'Hibernian Rhapsody'. It has the lines

'he would love her all his life
now he's living the artist's life... he's fallen deep in love with his Irish girl.'

I'd be grateful for any help.

Wolfgang

The one I'm looking for I now know to be the one from Ralph McTell, that starts as Panda above has said.

THE IRISH GIRL
As sung by Ralph McTell on "Affairs of the Heart" (2010)

1. What will he do now that he's a man and should be settling down?
If only he'd marry a local girl and stay right here in town.
Now he's living the artist's life and has taken the poet's role,
And has fallen deep in love with an Irish girl, and she's captured his heart and soul.

2. What will they do when they are wed, for a poet's pay is poor,
Sleeping at night on a borrowed bed and traipsing from door to door?
I don't know and it troubles me so, but they've gone and taken their vows,
And he has married his Irish girl, so they'll have to manage somehow.

3. What will they do when the children come, as the children surely will?
How will she cope when he drinks till he's numb, to ... his debts and bills?
She's not much more than a girl herself, now a lover, mother and nurse.
Ah, but he has married his Irish girl for better or for worse.

4. For a handsome man she would be a gift, so for him she is a prize,
With her high complexion and her corn-blonde hair and her blue and ... eyes.
Now they wait in each other's arms and she is the poet's wife,
And though he may wander from his Irish girl, he will love her all his life.

And though he may wander from his Irish girl, he will love her all his life.
