Subject: Little Red Fox, by the Fureys please
From: GUEST,david@g8ina.enta.net

The song we are looking for was recorded by the Fureys and Davey Arthur (maybe) and the chorus goes: Oh fox, oh fox, Oh little red fox With your heart beating in your breast/ chest(?) The hounds they do all follow you And still you cannot rest

Would appreciate the rest.

Please reply to email too cuz I dont get to visit Mudcat as often as I should... sorry :)

A SONG FOR THE FOX
Words and Music Finbar Furey

An old piper sat down to play
His voice he began to tune
The Fox-chase he heard someone say
And it echoed round the room

The Fox-chase for a hunter
To make him stand and cheer
Or is it for the little red dog
That we all fill with fear

Chorus
O fox o fox o little red fox
With your heart beating in your chest
The hounds they do all follow you
And still yopu cannot rest

The horses race after you
Their bodies all foamed with sweat
Their half-crazed masters riding them
Their minds all filled with death.

Their eyes stretch forth on the hunt
For you to kill they're set.
Not fearing for their own sweat lives
The fox they have to get.

Chorus:

The dogs they chase after you
Their tongues loll left to right
They scent their kill ahead of them
But he's not yet in sight

But as they pass the cold blackthorn
Their barks grow loud and clear
It's then the little red dog he knows
That death is crawing near

Men and hounds they gather round
But his life he fought to win
But the hunter's horn it sounded then
And they tore him limb from limb.

Old piper play your last lament
Sad sunset in your mind
For a little red dog that was torn to shreds
His life ended by mankind.

The Little Red Fox (An Madairin Rua) in Irish, is a very well known song. The lyrics are published in many places, incl. in O'Lochlainn's second Ballad Book (1965). The song was written by Francis Arthur Fahy (1854-1935)from near Kinvara, Galway who spent all of his adult life in the British Civil Service in London. He may have been originally inspired by a traditional song. Fahy also wrote The Ould Plaid Shawl, and, I think, Rebel Heart. Ther is very probably a website on him
