Thread Name: Req: The Old Man (Phil Coulter - Fureys version)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Old Man by Finbar Furey
Thanks George,
I have no luck making those clickies.
John McDermott also recorded a beautiful version of this song .
Finbar's is my favourite though. He has not got McDermott's vocal range but he imparts so much emotion into the song that it brings tears to the eye.
I was at a Furey's concert at the Cohn about 15 years ago. After Finbar sang that song I went to the lobby and bought the tape. I learned the song and still do it at times, especially around Fathers Day.
