Subject: Lyr Add: ST PATRICK'S DAY PARADE
From: Felipa
Date: 06 Mar 03 - 04:41 PM

These songs containing references to St Patrick's Day are quoted in Mick Maloney, Far From the Shamrock Shore. Wilton, Cork: Collins Press, 2002
[by the way. the book, subtitled "The History of Irish-American Immigration through Song", comes complete with a CD. These two songs aren't on the cd, however.]
another book of interest would be Edward Harrigan and David Braham Collected Songs Edited by Jon W. Finson

ST PATRICK'S DAY PARADE
Ed Harrigan

Then here's sucess to Patrick's Day though it comes but once a year
And though I'm not a drinking man, on that day I'd drink my beer.
I'll wear the shamrock in my hat, the green my boys 'twill never fade
And march along with Dan and Pat in the Patrick's Day parade.
We shout hurrah for Erin Go Bragh and all the Yankee nation
Stars and stripes and shamrock bright arrayed
The Irish shout, the girls turn out to see the celebration
We march stiff as starch in the Patrick's Day parade.

IF IT WASN'T FOR THE IRISH AND THE JEWS
Jerome and Schwartz

Talk about a combination, hear my words and make a note
On St Patrick's Day Rosinsky pins a shamrock on his coat
There's a sympathetic feeling between the Blooms and MacAdoos
Why Tammany would surely fall
Ther'd really be no hall at all
If it wasn't for the Irish and the Jews.

(recorded by Billy Murray in 1912
that page of Victor recordings also mentions St Patrick's Day Jig recorded by Victor Military Band, 1911)

My St. Patrick's season started today... Tell My Ma was a big hit, as was Jed Marum's "Look Ahead Tommy" (from the Streets of Fall River CD). I also played Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye and said, "This is an old Irish anti-war song, so it's timely for more than one reason."

Genie, you have Cockles and Mussels on one list and Molly Malone on the other. Is there a different song called Molly Malone?

Cheers, Marion

Actually, Marion, there is a song called "Molly Malone" that's totally different from Cockles & Mussels. So far I haven't added it to my playlist though. (I have sheet music but haven't learned it.)

I'm going to try to learn Si Bheag, Si Mhor -- at least instrumentally, if I can't master the Gaelic.

My partner and I will also be doing Both Sides The Tweed (No tomatoes. I know it's Scots. Sue me.) and Dear Old Donegal, If You're Irish, Come Into The Parlour, and a few other "faux Irish" songs that will go over well with our audience.

And, Mark, I didn't even notice you asked for chords for (the dreaded) Danny Boy.
A bit late, but I really like these chords (though I capo up 2):

[D]Oh, Danny Bo[G]y, the pi[Em]pes, the pi[G]pes are ca[C]lling [Am7]
From gle[D7]n to gle[G]n and do[Em]wn the mo[G]untainsi[A]de. [D]
The su[D7]mmer's go[G]ne and a[Em]ll the ro[G]ses fa[C]lling[Am7]
'Tis y[D7]ou, 'tis y[G]ou must g[D]o and [D7]I must b[C]ide,[]G

But co[D7]me ye ba[C]ck when sum[Am7]mer's in the me[G]adow[Em]
Or wh[D7]en the va[]Clley's hu[Am7]shed and wh[Em]ite with sn[A7]ow. [D]
'Tis I'l[D7]l be he[G]re] in sun[C]shine o[D7]r in sha[G]do[Em]w.
Oh, Da[D7]nny Bo[G]y, Oh, Dan[G7]ny Bo[C]y, I lo[Am7]ve yo[D7]u so[C] -> [G]

(I don't do full chords in all those places where I have chords indicated, Some are walkdowns and individual interim notes. But it works with the full chords too.)

Neither was Fred Weatherley, who wrote "Danny Boy" round about 1910/1912. He also wrote translations of Opera (including "Cavalleria Rusticana"), and a great deal of other journeyman-work, but said that he "drew the line at verses for Christmas cards".

Saint Patrick was a proper man, a man to be admired;
Of numbering his virtues I am never, never tired.
A handsome man, a holy man, a man of mighty deeds,
He walked the lanes of Erin, a-telling of his beads.
A-telling of his beads, he was, and spreading of the word.
I think that of Saint Patrick's Day, Saint Patrick never heard.
-- Ogden Nash

I will leave the rest to Providence & Paddy McGinty's goat.

Heya Mark,
My eldest daughter, Cheri (gorgeous woman!) may well show up at your gig on St.Pat's. She's stationed in the Navy over there and I'm quite sure will remain true to her roots and find an Irish bar to hang out in on the day. She'd be tickled if you mentioned her from stage and said hello to her from her Ma in Dublin. All the best and break a leg!
Eileen

Well, somebody had to do it - it's that time of year ...

Okay, here's me query: I've got a St. Patrick's pub gig lined up for the first time in many years - got out of the game for awhile - so I'm wondering what people figure are the absolutely essential songs to know (we're talking North America here)? I don't mean, suggestions of Irish songs to fill up a night, because I know a million, and many of them are mentioned already on this thread, but what are the ones that you MUST be prepared to perform, unless you want to leave your audience disappointed, disgruntled, discombobulated, disgusted, dismayed, disrespected, and/or disdainful?

So, top of the list - Danny Boy. Next?

As for Acres of clams there's Ancient and Old Irish Condom"

Sing something Irish to me
any old melody
sing me a song that I once knew
any old Irish song will do
Come back to Erin,
though you're thousand of miles o'er the foam
Sing something Irish to me tonight
to remind me of home sweet home.

I'm surprised; I thought everyone would be jumping in on this. I'll send 'er back up to the top. Okay, again, from the top:

1) Danny Boy
2) ?

(Do you still need to know Unicorn? Alway avoided learning it ... )

The words to Saint Patrick's Day are great. I always knew it as a "chune" but singing the lyrics adds so much.

The Scottish singer James Yorkston has a good song entitled St. Patrick, which seems to be about a hangover he acquired with an Irish girl.
