Jim,
       The actual title is 'She Led Me On,' the CD is 'Irish Songs of Wit and Wisdom.'

Guest, what's the title of that song you transcribed? (I can't find any reference to a song titled SHE TOOK ME BY THE HAND AND LET ME ON.)

And which Sean O'Neill album did you transcribe it from?

Frances, I can't guarantee every word of this because I transcribed from a Sean O'Neill CD.


Oh, I was a carefree bachelor long ago,
'Til I first met that sweet maid from Drumahoe,
She smiled at me as she passed by,
And gave me the come-on-hither eye,
And she took me by the hand and led me on.

We walked into the hayshed hand-in-hand,
And at courtin' she could surely beat the band,
I asked if I'd see her home,
'Oh no,' she said, she'd rather roam,
And she took me by the hand and led me on.

I kissed her on the cheeks and on the lips,
She smiled and then she shook her shapely head,
That night I did propose to her,
The reason why God only knows,
For she took me by the hand and led me on.

The day of the weddin' I was mighty scared,
I didn't know for her I really cared,
But when they asked me to say 'Yes,'
I hadn't even the time to guess,
For she took me by the hand and led me on.

We feasted all that day and all that night,
And when the weddin' guests were out of sight,
I crept up to her bedroom door,
Me two big feet got stuck on the floor,
And she took me by the hand and led me on.

I said I didn't want a family,
She said she didn't think the same as me,
And now we've got a pair of twins,
Triplets and a set of quins,
For she took me by the hand and led me on,
Yes, she took me by the hand and led me on.

Hi folks,
Could anyone help me with the lyrics of a song, the last line of each verse goes "she took me by the hand and led me on"

The man is shy but she took him by the hand .......
He did not want children but   .................
Thanks
