Raglan Road

"Raglan Road" can be found in Soodlum's 100 Irish Ballads Volume 2.It is a beautiful song of love at first sight and about being in love with the wrong kind of partner. The whole song is very poetic, I particularly admire the second verse:
   "On Grafton Street in November we tripped lightly along the ledge
    Of a deep ravine where can be seen the worth of a passion play
    The Queen of Hearts still making tarts, and I not making hay,
    Oh, I loved too much and by such and such, is happiness thrown away.
I give my thanks to Carolin Hilleckes who sings this song wonderfully and brought my attention to it. I accompanied her once or twice in 1998 on the concertina.
