Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: THE LEPRECHAUN (Masterless Men)
From: chico
Date: 28 Jan 06 - 12:32 AM


   D                                                 (7)
O fiddle diddle catch and riddle me quick or I'll be gone
   G             (7)
O fiddle diddle catch and riddle me
A7          D
I'm a leprechaun
A7          D (7)
I'm a leprechaun

G                      D
Way back in Ireland in days of yore
       A7                   D          (1st:D7 Ending:A7)
There lived a wee man seldom seen anymore
He stood some inches high and he was always dressed in green
The master of magic, ah the best ever seen
Wearing silver bottles, tiny Golden bells
He would go singing through the dells

Now when I was a boy more than once I was told
About this leprechaun and his pot of gold
Golden sovereigns and more than this,
If you could catch the Leprechaun he would grant you a wish
But catching this little man was hard I fear
Whenever he was seen he would always disappear

Now you can say I was drunk you can call me a liar
One night out in the woods yes I saw a fire
I thought go wee closer and have me a peep
Slowly in the woods I started to creep
To my surprise around the fire dancing in the rain
Was a score of little leprechauns, and I heard em sing

I thought I'd wait until they finished their fun
And when they'd gone to sleep then maybe I'd catch me one
All tired from dancing they laid down by a log
So I crept up and I caught one but he turned into a frog
He was all wet and slippery from me hands he did spring
As he hopped through the woods I could hear them sing:

Listened to this around 1968 and it was said to be traditional. The German band Bedafolks used to sing it.

As Lighter suggests this does not seem to be a traditional piece - a good thing as it would be much better to have someone to blame! (Frankly I'd hope that the tradition would have weeded out such a tawdry piece of dreck).

This suggests that one "Don Sullivan" was the perpetrator.
