Driscoll Songs of emigration (44) RE: Songs of emmigration 06 Mar 99


So many songs on emmigration old and new. One of the saddest of the older songs I know is "Noreen Bond" with the great line about the "curse of emmigration". Some of the newer songs which I like and are heard now and then in the Irish pubs in my area (Buffalo, NY) are "Emigrant Eyes" and "Kitty Bawn O'Brien" where the woman leaves to go to Canada. Hear things are changing in Ireland for the better in Ireland. Lot of jobs and people are now talking about going back home. Like the songs says "those big airplanes go both ways."

To O'Boyle: Could you please post chords to "Reason I left Mullingar." Great song written by Davy Fury?
