This is actually a reprint of a book first published in 1964 so you won't find
any of the newer material here. However, what you will find is the lyrics and
music (including guitar chords) to many classic Irish rebel songs and ballads.
Perfect for anyone who enjoys this genre of music or grew up listening to
the Clancys. I've discovered the correct words for several songs I
"mis-heard" over the years. Includes Kevin Barry, The Irish Rover
, Cruiscín Lán
, Finnegan's Wake
, The Old Orange Flute, Young Roddy Mcorley, The Wild Colonial Boy
, The Rising of the Moon
, Johnny McEldoo
, and many
I have only a few complaints: Surely by now the Clancy Brother's and
Tommy Makem could have put together a complete songbook with ALL of
their material? Also, the book has a few minor typos, is fairly small, and the
spine will have to be broken if you want it to lay flat on a music stand. But
overall, I'm delighted to have found this volume and must now purchase a
few more for various family members.
