Does anyone have a relatively simple set of chords for this? I'm a beginning player, but can puzzle my way through the basics. Thanks!

Yah, but its chorus is a demanding one. I remember hearing Allen Mills sing it on his Folkways Recording of Newfoundland Songs.

Good luck!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Thanks! I was able to print out the sheet music. However, it lacks chords. Can anyone place guitar chords to this song. It is in the key of "A".

Also know as Miss Houlihans Christmas Cake. Recorded by Mick Maloney, forget the name of the CD, and is also on a Revels recording, "A Victorian Christmas".

Mick Maloney, with Eugene O'Donnell, recorded it on a CD called Uncommon Bonds (Green Linnet--GLCD 1053). CD came out in 1997--original record came out 1984. And it's a great CD--also includes a delightful version of St. Brendan's Fair Isle, among other songs and instrumentals. I would guess Camsco (Mudcat) has it or Dick can get it.

MMario, thanks so much for that link to the Library of Congress sheet music. It's fascinating to find out it was published in 1883. Can't tell if that was only in the US--was it also published in London or Ireland? According to the Library of Congress, Miss Forgarty's.....was written by C. Frank Horn, who wrote at least one other song published by W. F Shaw, the publisher of Miss Fogarty's... The other song was called Ivy Leaves, and published 1884, the year after Miss Fogarty's...    I assume C Frank Horn was an American. Does anybody know?


Does anybody have any information as to whether Miss Fogarty's... was part of the then-current "stage Irish" or actually sung by Irishmen--and others for fun? Or both?

I sing the song--Mick's version --(he puts in the names of the people on his CD as the names of the unfortunate party-goers)-- every year around now--in our caroling. I've sung it at several parties.

Sang it also as part of fundraising with the Washington Men's Camerata, at 1789, a local upscale restaurant.   Quartets of us were singing 4 part arrangements of Christmas songs around the restaurant--for a fee set by the restaurant in advance--we do not ask any diners for money. A man asked if we knew any Irish Christmas songs. So I sang Miss Fogarty's, and the other quartet members made up harmony on the chorus--as best they could, never having heard the song before. He gave the group a $20 bill on the spot. Later he saw us down on the first floor--and gave us another $20.

great story, Ron. I sang it yesterday for a group of seniors and they loved it, too! I learned it from Mick, as well, when he performed it here.

Thanks, KT.


This song is getting a fair amount of exposure in the DC area these days.


My mother and stepfather (who's 93 and sings with a group in the assisted living place where they live--just saw him in concert with his group last Friday)---decided they wanted to go hear Maggie Sansone, a local hammer dulcimer player, with her current group. So I chauffeured them to the concert Saturday.

Though I didn't have high hopes for the concert--expected just instrumentals--they had a vocalist who sang this song--and asked the audience to join in the chorus right off the bat. But I think I may have been the only one in the audience who did so. The people ahead of us were surprised I could belt out the chorus--and said so.
