Subject: Hello Patsy Fagan
From: John MacKenzie
Date: 14 Aug 01 - 04:32 PM

In 1947 ( The year of the bad winter!! ) I lived in Skelmorlie on the Clyde coast. We rented a room in a big house and one of the other lodgers was an Irish guy who used to sing a song called Hello Patsy Fagan ( I think ) and I've never heard it since. I'm sure that one of our staunch band of Mudcatters can help me out on this one. Thank-you.

Jock

Jock, ask and you shall receive - enjoy

HELLO PATSY FAGAN

Well, I'm working here in Glasgow and I've got a dacent job,
Carrying bricks and mortar, and me pay is fifteen bob.
I wake up in the morning; I rise up with the lark;
And as I'm walking down the street, you can hear the girls remark:

CHORUS: "Well, hello, Patsy Fagan," you can hear the girls all cry.
"Hello, Patsy Fagan. You're the apple of my eye.
You're a dacent boy from Ireland and there's no one can deny
You're a harum-scarum, devil-may-carum dacent Irish boy.

The day that I left Ireland, 'twas many years ago.
I left my home in Antrim where the pigs and praties grow;
But since I left old Ireland, I'll do the best I can
To let the people see that I'm a dacent Irishman. CHORUS

So if there's one among you would like to marry me,
I'll take you to my little home across the Irish Sea.
I'll dress you up in satin and do the best I can
To let the people see that I'm a dacent Irishman. CHORUS.

G'day Marty Bhoy,

For what it's worth, the version collected in Australia ... presumably uses the same standard music-hall tune ... so here are the published chords in Alan Scott's A Collector's Songbook, Bush Music Club, Sydney, 1970 - where the tune is in the key of C (transpose to suit ...):
/C    /       /G7    /C      |

/C    /       /G7 D7/G7    |

/C    /       /      /Am    |

/C    /       /G7    /C      |

Regards,

Bob

Is he the same Patsy Fagan who played snooker and couldn't play with a rest in the latter part of his career?

Where are they now?
