Hi,,
I would like the notation to Finnegans Wake. I have found the lyrics in DT, but can't find tune. If any of you can put in a few chords 'twould be grand too!! Preference key D / F

Brioc, I can email the staff notation to MMario who can then post the ABC or I can email you the staff notation direct.

The author, John F. Poole, spelled it 'Finigin's Wake'.

Good link, Masato, both 4/4 versions represent the tune sung by Dominic Behan.

Re: the lyrics for Finnegan's Wake in the DT; I have a 1952 songbook with a different chorus:

With my philalloo, hubbaboo, whack hurroo boys,
Didn't we sing till our jaws did ache,
And shout and laugh and drink and sing,
Oh, it's lots of fun at Finnegan's wake.

Alternate lyrics, perhaps?

Bm==F#m===A
Bm==F#m==G==A
Bm==F#m===G
A===G===A==D


Bm==F#==G===A=
Bm==F#m==G==A==D

as best I can reconstruct from memory. Tweak until happy.
