Does anybody know the lyrics or where I might ge them to the old Irish song "Eileen"? The first lines are:

"In a town by the sea near the castle Dooneen
The fairest of all was the maiden Eileen"

oh no never more was her heart light and warm,
Her lover he died, yes he died in a storm,
And down by the shore you could hear it again,
His ghost in the wind singing, fill `em again.

Eileen

In a town on the sea by the Castle Dooneen
The fairest of all was the maiden Eileen
The bloom on her cheek was as fresh as the dew
And her heart to a young fisher laddie was true
At morn he would sail with the sun and the tide
At eve he'd return to his promised young bride
There on the shore she could hear it so plain
His voice in the wind singing soft this refrain
Eileen, my Eileen, wait for me, wait Eileen

They were to be wed on a Sunday in May
And faith 'twas a joy to see Eileen so gay
The morning before he set sail with the tide
But he never returned to his promised young bride
No, never more was her heart light and warm
Her lover he died, yes he died in a storm
But down on the shore she could still hear so plain
His voice in the wind sing soft this refrain
Eileen, my Eileen, wait for me, wait Eileen

They say that her heart, it was broken in two
The lovely Eileen, so young and so true
And down by the shore, they who loved her the best
By the rock where she waited, they laid her to rest
Oh many's the year that have passed since that day
And maidens who wait for their lovers there say
That still on the shore they can hear it so plain
His ghost in the wind, sing soft this refrain
Eileen, my Eileen, wait for me, wait Eileen

    Songwriters: Sylvia Fine and Max Liebman

Air is "Mountains of Mourne", plus a short refrain?

Thank you "Brakn" for the lyrics to Eileen. You have made an old woman very happy. (Not me , my mother in law!)

Bing Crosby made a recording of it. It may be worth tracking down.

Bing Crosby's "Eileen" is on Bing Crosby -- Top O' The Morning: His Irish Collection [with sound clip].

The tune for the verse part, as given above, is that of "The mountains of mourne", available as a midi HERE My recollection is that there is usually a short chorus, also?

Regards

Yeah, so all we need is for somebody to transcribe the chorus for me, and I'll add it to the MIDI for "Mourne."
I think I'll add this one to my repertoire.
The Harry Fox Agency Songfile Website says the songwriters are SYLVIA FINE, MAX LIEBMAN - good Irishmen, both.
