Subject: Lyr Add: DUBLIN - TAKE ME
From: Harald
Date: 03 Nov 97 - 09:01 PM

About a year ago, I came across a song called "Dublin - Take Me" sung by Finbar Furey and Davey Arthur. Very boogie-like. Quite untypical, at least for F.Furey. Does anybody know, if they did more like this ? Or is anyone able to fill the gaps ? I´d be very glad to get the song complete. Here is what I could get from the record:

Dublin - Take Me

If you´re going back to Dublin - take me
on a nightlife ... there´s nowhere else I want to be.
Just pick me up and carry me across the Irish Sea.
Well, if you´re going back to Dublin - take me.

Well, if I can´t make it, please take my regards to Sweeney O´Donnell, my good friend´s down in Rathgar
... and a big smile for the guards.
Well, if I can´t make it, please take my regards

Sunny days on the Wicklow Mountains, and music on ...
rainy nights in the Crescent (Gresham?) Hotel,
oh Lord, I´ve gotta, I´ve got to go !

I meet you under the arch at Trinity around about eight.
And if it don´t rain, I´ll be waiting outside at the gate.
We can go to O´Neill´s and talk all night
and tomorrow when heaven can wait,
I meet you under the arch at Trinity around about eight.

Sunny days in the Wicklow Mountains,
and music on ...
rainy nights in the Grecian Hotel,
oh Lord, I´ve gotta, I´ve got to go !

oo-oo, oo-oo, oo-oo.

If you´re going back to Dublin - take me
on a nightlife there´s nowhere else I want to be.
Just pick me up and carry me across the Irish Sea.
Well, if you´re going back to Dublin - take me.


Greetings to y´all, Harald

Hi Harald

don't know the song, but it is probably the "Gresham Hotel" which is one of the main hotels in Dublin. Spent a weekend there once.

You did? Saw it from the outside, only. Wish my job would enable me to join it from the inside, too.

Slainte, Harald

hi

My then fiance (now husband), had just come back from a contracting job in Saudi, and was trying to make a good impression.

Haven't been in it again since.

Slainte

It´s on a sampler containing lots of Dublin-Songs. The whole is called someting like "Memories of Ireland" or so. The most on it sounds like the title suggests, but Dublin-Take Me doesn´t want to fit into this scheme. Very interesting song.

Lyrics copied from http://www.roguery.com/gurrier/dublin_songs/dublintakeme.htm

DUBLIN TAKE ME
(Rab Noakes)

If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me.
On a night like this, there's nowhere else I'd rather be.
Just pick me up and carry me across the Irish Sea.
If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me.

If I can't make it, please take my regards
To Sweeny O'Donagh, my good friend down in Rathgar.
Keep a clean nose for the customs man and a big smile for the Guards.
If I can't make it, please take my regards.

CHORUS: Sunny days in the Wicklow Mountains, and music on Merrion Row,
Rainy nights in the Gresham Hotel, O Lord, I gotta, I gotta go.

I'll meet you under the arch in Trinity around about eight
And if it don't rain I'll be waiting outside of the gate.
We can go to O'Neill's and talk all night and tomorrow when heaven can wait,
I'll meet you under the arch in Trinity around about eight. CHORUS

If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me.
On a night like this, there's nowhere else I'd rather be.
Just pick me up and carry me across the Irish Sea.
If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me. CHORUS

If you're goin' back to Dublin, I said, if you're goin' back to Dublin,
If you're goin' back to Dublin, take me, take me, take me.

The "Merrion Row" reference is, of course, to O'Donoghue's pub on that thoroughfare, spiritual home of The Dubliners.
