There is a Soodlums series of books, small size, probably 5x8. There are four of them, with irish pictures on the front. One in that series has the words and music to Grace. I will look up the info tomorrow for you and post it here. I know that Elderly Instruments out of Lansing, MI carries it and they have mail order. I will get you the lyrics and chords and post it to this string in the next day or two. The song is about Joseph Mary Plunket and his fiance, Grace Gifford (?). Just before he was led out by the Brits to be shot at Kilmainhem Jail for his part in the '16 Rising, he married her in his jail cell. It is a magnificent song.

Here are the lyrics and chords for "Ireland," from Cowpie, the country lyrics archive. Cowpie also has a tab version.
Mick, can you post the tyrics for "Grace"? If you can post the tune, too, that would be even better.

Thanks so much for your help, Mick and Joe; however, what I really need are the melodies to these songs. If you know anywhere that has a .wav file or something, that would be great! And, of course, sheet music would be the best...

I haven't mastered the abc music stuff which is not surprising as I still have to learn to read any type of music but I can email you a JPEG file (picture) of the sheet music.

Leave your email here and I can sent it tomorrow.

Juliana,

The sheet music for "Grace" is found in the Mel Bay (not Soodlums as I previously stated)book called "Ireland, the Songs", Book two. If I knew how to make a wav. file I would either sing or send you a recording. At any rate, it appears that Frank is going to send you a JPEG. If you would like a copy of the pamphlet with the song, email me your snail mail address and I will send you the booklet with the music. I have an extra and would be happy to do so. You can email me at mlane@accn.org.

Joe, Here are the lyrics with chords for "Grace". I don't know how to attach a wav. file or I would put a copy of the recording in as well.

GRACE
       C                             F              G
As we gather in the chapel here in old Kilmainham Jail,
F C G
I think about the last few weeks oh will they say we failed?
C F G
From our school days they have told us we must yearn for liberty,
F C Am G C
Yet all I want in this dark place is to have you here with me.

CHORUS:
G F C
Oh Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger.
F C G
Then take me out at dawn and I will die._________
F C
With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger
F C Am G C
There won't be time to share our love, for we must say good-bye.

V2.
Now I know it's hard for you, my love, to ever understand,
The love I bear for these brave men, my love for this dear land.
But when Padraic called me to his side, down in the GPO.
I had to leave my own sick bed, to him I had to go.

CHORUS

V3.
Now as the dawn is breaking, my heart is breaking too,
On this May morn, as I walk out, my thoughts will be of you.
And I'll write some words upon the walls, os everyone will know,
I loved you so much that I could see his blood upon the rose.

CHORUS

I was cleaning out my personal page and noticed you had asked a question of Frank. I am not sure who wrote it, but Barleycorn is one of many bands that recorded it. I wish I knew how to attach a wav file, because I would send you a clip.

Problem noted, there are a couple of aspects of MIDItext needing attention & I'll try to look at them real soon now. I haven't done much with it lately because of a very busy year and the hope that this forum would become more multimedia friendly (I'm sure Max is working on it). In the meantime, when I can find the time..........

If anyone is that interested, I have a version on record of Grace and I can supply an arrangeent of same in the keys of A to Bb. Bear in mind, in Ireland the production is perforce a wee bit showbizzy, as otherwise the audiene would walk out leaving the traddie on his own.

Subject: Lyr Add: I SEE HIS BLOOD UPON THE ROSE (Plunkett)
From: paddymac
Date: 07 Sep 01 - 01:32 PM

The song "Grace" is about Grace Gifford and Joseph Mary Plunkett, executed for his party in the Rising of 1916. The last line of the third verse is taken from a poem written by Plunkett. I stumbled across the poem in a recently acquired re-publication of a 50-year old anthology. Here it is for those interested.

I SEE HIS BLOOD UPON THE ROSE Joseph Mary Plunkett (1887-1916)

I see his blood upon the rose
And in the stars the glory of his eyes,
His body gleams amonh eternal snows,
His tears fall from the skies.

I see his face in every flower;
The thunder and the singing of the birds
Are but his voice- and carven by his power
Rocks are his written words.

All pathways by his feet are worn,
HIs strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea,
His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn,
His cross is every tree.
