Subject: Lyr Add: PADDY FROM CLARE (from Donagh MacDonagh)
From: Jim Dixon

Is this the one you want?
This was collected by Donagh MacDonagh.
Copied from http://members.tripod.com/~songbook1/PaddyfromClare.html

PADDY FROM CLARE

I was processed for the rent, and being short of a gale,
I sold my last beast in the town of Rathkeal
To a crafty old codger that I met at the fair.
They call him old Paddy, the jobber from Clare.

When the bargain was made and the money paid down,
I called for a treat before leaving the town.
When he swallowed his porter, he grinned like a bear.
"'Tis like creamery milk," says the jobber from Clare.

He said, "Bring the same," but I answered him no,
I said 'twas a shame to be drinking also,
"But get something to eat. You are hungry, I swear."
"Ah, there's nothing like eating," says Paddy from Clare.

He says, "Praties are scarce and the meal is too high.
The fodder is bad and the cattle will die.
Famine is coming. You had better prepare.
'Tis the end of the world," says Paddy from Clare.

"But the latest of fashions our servants display.
They are jazzing the night and asleep all the day,
And all the young girls are a-bobbing their hair.
'Twill make stuffing for saddles," said Paddy from Clare.

"Each swanky spailpin has a watch and a chain,
And rides his machine though the mud and the rain,
And soon they'll demand rashers as soon as you're there.
No wonder we're broke," said old Paddy from Clare.

He finished his rashers and his tea he gulped down.
We shook hands and parted at the end of the town,
But 'tis often I laugh though my pockets are bare
When I think of old Paddy, the jobber from Clare.

Same tune as 'Rambler from Clare' - traditional and re-written by MacColl for TV film 'The Irishman' in the early sixties

According to the US Catalog of Copyright Entries, a song called PADDY FROM CLARE, with words and music by Mervyn Saunders, was registered on April 28, 1939, Keith, Prowse & Co., Ltd., London, publishers.

The British Library has a copy of the sheet music.

Of course, I can't be sure it's the right song.
