Songs of Ireland – Louise Morrissey – Come Back Paddy Reilly

The Garden of Eden has vanished they say
But I know the lie of it still
Just turn to the left at the bridge of Finea
And stop when halfway to Cootehill.

It’s there you’ll find it I know sure enough
For fortune has come to my call
The grass it is green around Ballyjamesduff
And the blue sky is over it all.

And tones that are tender and tones that are ruff
Come whispering over the sea
Come back, Paddy Reilly to Ballyjamesduff
Come home, Paddy Reilly, to me.

My mother once told me that when I was born
The day that I first saw the light
I looked down the street on that very first morn
And gave a crow of delight.

Now most newborn babies appear in a puff
And start with a sorrowful squall
But I knew I was born in Ballyjamesduff
And that’s why I smiled at them all.

The baby’s a man now, he’s toil-worn and tough
Still, whispers come over the sea
Come back, Paddy Reilly to Ballyjamesduff
Come home, Paddy Reilly, to me.Come home, Paddy Reilly, to me…

Loah & Lisa Hannigan – O Holy Night

A Christmas Carol from our favourite duo.
Sallay Garnett and Lisa Hannigan have the best musical chemistry I have experienced. Their energy is contagious especially in their rendition of Undertow as part of the Courage project. Rarely you see someone enjoy singing together this much.

Brendan O’Dowda singing Gortnamona, written by Percy French.
Long, long ago in the woods of Gortnamona, I thought the birds were singing in the blackthorn tree; But oh, it was my heart that was singing, singing, singing, With the joy that you were bringing, oh my love, to me Long, long ago in the woods of Gortnamona, I thought the wind was sighing round the blackthorn tree; But oh, it was the banshee that was crying, crying, crying, And I knew my love was dying far across the sea. Now if you go through the woods of Gortnamona, You’ll hear the raindrops creeping through the blackthorn tree; But oh, it is the tears thatI am weeping, weeping, weeping, For the loved one that is sleeping far away from me. Long, long ago in the woods of Gortnamona, I thought the birds were singing in the blackthorn tree; But oh, it was my heart that was singing, singing, singing, With the joy that you were bringing, oh my love, to me

Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton – You’ll Never Be the Sun

Lyrics

You’ll never be the sun turning in the sky
And you won’t be the moon above us on the moonlit night
And you won’t be the stars in heaven although they burn so bright
But even on the deepest ocean you will be the light

You may not always shine as you go barefoot over stones
You might be so long together or you might walk alone
And you’ll find that love comes easy
Or that love is always right
So even when the storm clouds gather you will be the light

And if you lose a parting side when love turns round on you
Leaving the past behind is knowing you’ll do like you always
Holding you blind
keeping you true

You’ll never be the sun turning in the sky
and you won’t be the moon above us on the moonlit night
and you won’t be the stars in heaven although they burn so bright
but even on the deepest ocean you will be the light
you will be the light
you will be the light
