Subject: Lyr Req: Rosie The Girl From Kildare
From: Rabbi-Sol
Date: 03 Jun 04 - 07:34 PM

I hear this song very often on many Irish music programs. The first line of the chorus is " Meet me tonight by the Fireside". I ends "You'll be glad to be married to Rosie, who you met on the road to Kildare". I know the tune, but I need to get the words. SOL ZELLER

Is this the song you mean.?

THE ROADS OF KILDARE

Johnny was born in a mansion, somewhere in the County of Clare
Rosie was reared by the roadside, somewhere in County Kildare
Destiny brought them together, on the road to Killorglin one day
In her bright pretty shawl she was singing,
And she stole his young heart away
    And she said.....

Chorus
Meet me tonight at the camp-fire, come with me over the hill
Let us be married to-morrow, please let me whisper I will
What if the neighbours are talking
Who cares if your friends stop and stare
You'll be proud to be married to Rosie
Who was reared on the road to Kildare

Think of the parents that reared you, think of the family name
How could you marry a Gypsy? Oh what a terrible shame
Parents and friends stop your pleading, don't worry about my affair
For I've fallen in love with a Gypsy
Who was reared on the road to Kildare
And she said....

Chorus

Johnny came down from his mansion
Just as the sun was going down
Turning his back on his kin-folk, likewise on his own native town
Facing the roads of old Ireland, with the gypsy he loved so sincere
As he came to the light of the camp-fire
These are the words he could hear
And she said....

Chorus

Thank You Malachy. That is exactly the song I am looking for. Would you or anyone else on the forum know who the author is or was ? SOL ZELLER

AMG - All Music Guide says it's been recorded by Daniel O'Donnell and by Marie O'Brien. You can find the exact albums if you search at that site, and you can even find sound samples if you follow the links to Barnes & Noble.

A "Lyrics & Knowledge Search" will throw up some details, too.

ROADS OF KILDARE in the DT.

There are a couple of earlier threads, too. You will find links to them on the DT page.

There's a lyric by the name at this site:

http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/w/winters_verge/the_old_mans_wish.html

Is that it?

(It's best to start a new thread for a new song.)
