Hi all, I really need the notation, or at least a midi, of "The Dublin Minstrel," a tune written in memorfy of Luke Kelly, and recorded by Paddy Reilly. If anyone knows who wrote it, I would appreciate that bit of knowledge as well. Thanks to whomever for the effort, Hal

Here it is, Hal. Nice song, really moves me. Paddy Reilly wrote it himself. If nobody comes up with the melody line, I'll figure out how to put that in, too.

The Dublin Minstrel - Paddy Reilly

From Dublin's [C]streets and rows, all down the [F]years,
Came great mus-[C]icians and ballad-[G]eers.
There was a [C]special one, a red-haired [F]minstrel boy,
And when he [C]passed away, a city [G]mourned its fav-[G7]orite [C]son.

    CHORUS
    All 'round the markets and down the [F]quays,
    The sad [C]news spread to the liber-[G]tines.
    The minstrel [B]boy was gone, he'll sing no [F]more,
    And Luke, some-[C]how, we know we'll never [G]see your [G7]like a-[C]gain.

He liked to laugh and sing, he loved a jar,
And his songs rang out in many city bars.
I walked by the old canal, near which he used to live,
Down Raglan Road, I'm sad, as he'd so much left to give.

    CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

Now the show is over, the curtain's down,
A flame no longer burns in Dublin town.
While the Liffey flows beneath the Ha'penny Bridge,
You'll be remembered, Luke, for all you've sung and all you did.

    CHORUS

I suspect that the second line of the chorus should read "..to the Liberties.." (an area of inner city Dublin.) Mind you, the "libertines" might have been sad too!

Regards

I think you're right, Martin - on both counts :-)

I've never seen the words in print, so transcribed as best I could. Didn't know about "the Liberties", either, but now I've done my research. That's what's great about the 'Cat, and the web in general.

Probably not Mondegreen material, but close.

Tiger, Thanks much! By the way, it is Liberties, the neighborhood. If you can't come up with the notation, I guess I'll manage. I have a very good Celtic harp accompanist and my hope is she'll be able to figure it out without the notes. See you, Hal

apparently this tune is copyright as I was informed by pro midi sequencers who can't make a pro midi as they can't find out who the writer is to get his permission.
