  • The Young Dubliners -- The Foggy Dew

    3:14

    Howdy, folks!

    This is a different version than the one that's already been uploaded, and in my opinion, better.

    Comes off the album With All Due Respect. Hope ya like it!

    --Lyrics--

    'Twas down the glen one Easter morn
    to a city fair rode I
    There was Armed lines of marching men
    in squadrons passed me by
    No pipe did hum nor battle drum
    did sound it's dread tattoo
    But the Angelus bell o'er the Liffey swell
    rang out o'er the foggy dew

    Right proudly high over Dublin Town
    they hung out the flag of war
    'Twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky
    than at Sulva or Sud El Bar
    And from the plains of Royal Meath
    strong men came hurryin' through
    While Britannia's Huns, with their long range guns
    sailed out on the foggy dew

    'Twas England bade our Wild Geese fly
    that small nations might be free
    But their lonely graves are by Sulva's waves
    or the fringe of the Great North Sea
    Oh, had they died by Pearse's side
    or fought with Cathal Brugha
    Their names we will keep where the fenians sleep
    'neath the shroud of the foggy dew

    But the bravest fell, and the requiem bell
    rang mournfully and clear
    For those who died that Eastertide
    in the spring time of the year
    And the world did gaze, with deep amaze,
    at those fearless men, but few
    Who bore the fight, so that freedom's light
    might shine through the foggy dew

  • The Young Dubliners -- Ill Tell Me Ma

    2:54

    One of my favorite folk songs out there. And they(by which I mean The Young Dubliners) covered it(as usual) brilliantly!

    Quick recap..
    Artist: The Young Dubliners
    Song: I'll Tell Me Ma
    Album: With all Due Respect

    Hope ya love the song as much as I.

    --Lyrics!--

    I'll tell me ma when I go home
    The boys won't leave the girls alone
    They pull my hair & stole my comb
    But that's all right till I get home

    (chorus)
    She is handsome, she is pretty
    She is the belle of Dublin city
    She is courting one, two, three
    Please, won't you tell me, who is she?

    Albert Mooney says he loves her
    All the boys are fighting for her
    Knock at the door and they ring the bell
    Saying, oh my true love, are you well?
    Out she comes, as white as snow
    Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
    Old Jenny Murphy says she'll die
    If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye

    (Chorus)

    Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
    Snow come shovelin' from the sky
    She is sweet as apple pie
    She'll get 'er own lad by and by
    When she gets a lad of her own
    She won't tell her ma when she goes home
    Let them all come as they will
    It's Albert Mooney she loves still

    (Chorus)

  • The Young Dubliners -- McAlpines Fusiliers

    3:13

    Howdy, folks!

    I could've sworn I'd uploaded this song, but apparently not. This was the very first song I heard from them. I know it's a cover, I'm just saying, it happened to be the first song I - Nevermind...

    Enjoy the song. It's from the album With All Due Respect.

    --Lyrics--

    As down the glen came McAlpine's men
    With their shovels slung behind them
    T'was was in the pub that they drank their sub
    Or out in the spite you will find them
    They sweated blood, they washed down mud
    With pints and quarts of beer
    Now we're on the road again with McAlpine's Fusiliers

    I stripped to the skin with Darky Finn
    Way down on the Isle of Grain
    With a Horseface Tool, I knew the rule: No money if you stop for rain
    For McAlpine's god is a well filled hod
    Your shoulders cut to bits and seared
    And woe to he who went to look for tea with McAlpine's Fusiliers

    I remember the day that the Bear O'Shea,
    Fell into the concrete stairs
    What Horseface said, when he saw him dead,
    Well it wasn't what the rich call prayers
    I'm a navvy short, was his one retort
    That reached unto my ears
    When the going gets rough, well you must be tough, with McAlpine's Fusiliers

    I've worked till the sweat, it had me bet
    With Russian, Czech and Pole
    At shutterin' jams, in the Hydro Dams
    or underneath the Thames in a hole
    I grafted hard, and I got my cards
    and many a ganger's fist across my ears
    And if you pride your life, don't join, by Christ, McAlpine's Fusiliers!

    3:35

    The Young Dubliners cover of the song The Leaving of Liverpool.

    From the album With All Due Respect.

    Enjoy, gentlemen, ladies.

    --Lyrics--

    Farewell thee well, to Princes' landing stage
    Mersey River, fare thee well
    I am bound for California, a place I know right well.
    So fare thee well, my own true love
    When I return united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
    but my darlin' when I think of thee

    I boarded the yankee's sailin' ship, Davy Crockett is her name
    And Burgess is the captain of her,
    and they say that she's a floating hell
    So fare thee well my own true love
    When I return united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
    but my darlin' when I think of thee

    The ship is in the harbor, love
    And I wish I could remain
    For I know it will be a long, long time before I will see you again

    So fare thee well, my own true love
    When I return united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me
    but my darlin' when I think of thee

  • YOUNG DUBLINERS on CBS The Early Show

    7:41

    (CBS) If you see a group of fans breaking into Irish gig pits then you know you're definitely at a Young Dubliners concert.

    The Young Dubliners rocked the Second Cup Café stage with an ode to the Emerald Isle through an upbeat and heartfelt performance.

    The band has made it their mission to embrace their Irish heritage with a traditional sound - infused with a modern rock edge.

    Influenced by the Pogues, Waterboys, U2, Celtic musician Christy Moore and Irish band The Furey Brothers, the Young Dubliners blend Irish folk, Irish pop songs and fierce guitar riffs into their music.

    St. Patrick's Day Section

    429 Records recently released their latest album, With All Due Respect, The Irish Sessions.

    Vocalist and guitarist Keith Roberts refers to the band's song selection as the best of the best representing poets, playwrights and vagabonds, indeed, centuries-old traditional melodies shimmer bookended by distinctive romps through the songcraft of Shane McGowan which brush up against the wistfully sad lyrics of Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh.

    Formed by Dublin natives Keith Roberts and Paul O'Toole in 1988, the Young Dubliners paved their way to the Los Angeles pub scene where they built a solid fanbase, but never left their Irish roots too far behind.

    Although several band members have come and gone since its inception, the Young Dubliners' love for Irish music has always been constant.

  • Young Dubliners - Saints and Sinners - Rosie

    2:50

    Now Rosie, You're losin' the spot, love;
    The light used to shine in your eye.
    Now, tell me you haven't stopped dreamin'
    That you still reach out for the sky
    For this life, it's no bed of roses,
    It's not all it's cracked up to be
    But in the end there's always you and me...

    (Chorus)

    Rosie, sweet Rosie
    Money don't grow on trees
    But if I thought for just one second it did
    I'd be down on my bended knee

    Now we'll take our tea and a lemon,
    A match that was made in the Heaven
    Two lovers that walk in on this town
    We don't need a ball or a gown.
    Now tell your dear Ma not to worry,
    You won't need for nothing with me
    Now let the rivers run down to the sea.

    Rosie, sweet Rosie,
    Money don't grow on trees
    But if I thought for just one second it did
    I'd be down on my bended knee

    I'm down on my bended knee,
    So you'd spend your whole life with me
    Until the day, it'll be okay
    You'll see, you'll see

    Rosie, sweet Rosie,
    Money don't grow on trees
    But if I thought for just one second it did
    I'd be down on my bended knee
    But if I thought for just one second it did
    I'd be down on my bended knee
    Yeah, I'd be down on my bended knee!

    4:46

    In the merry month of May, out from me home I started,
    Left the girls of Tuam, Nearly broken hearted,
    Saluted father dear, Kissed my darlin' mother,
    Drank a pint of beer, grief and tears to smother,
    Off to reap the corn, leave where I was born,
    cut a stout blackthorn, To banish ghost and goblin,
    brand new pair of brogues, rattled o'er the bogs,
    Frightened all the dogs, On the rocky road to Dublin.

    (Chorus)
    One, two, three, four, five,
    Hunt the hare and turn her
    Down the rocky road
    And all the ways to Dublin,
    Whack-for-al-de-a.


    In Mullingar that night, rested limbs so weary,
    Started by daylight, Next mornin' bright and early,
    Took a drop of the pure, keep my heart from sinkin',
    That's the Paddys cure, Whene'er he's on for drinking.
    see the lasses smile, Laughing all the while,
    At me darlin style, set your heart a throbbin.
    Enquirin bout me pay, wage if I required,
    Till I was nearly tired, Of the rocky road to Dublin.


    In Dublin next arrived, thought it such a pity,
    To be so soon deprived, view of that fine city.
    Decided to take a stroll, All among the quality,
    bundle it was stole, In that neat locality;
    Something crossed my mind, Then I looked behind;
    No bundle could I find, Upon my stick a wobblin'.
    Enquirin' after the rogue, Said my Connacht brogue,
    Wasn't much in vogue, On the rocky road to Dublin.


    Went upon me way, spirits never failin'
    Landed on the quay As the ship was sailin';
    Captain at me roared, Said no room had he,
    Then I jumped aboard, room found for Paddy,
    Down amongst the pigs, did some hearty rigs,
    Danced some hearty jigs, The water round us bubblin',
    Then off Holyhead, wished that I was dead,
    Or better off instead, On the rocky road to Dublin.


    The boys of Liverpool, When we safely landed,
    Called myself a fool, could no longer stand it;
    Blood began to boil, Temper I was losin',
    When ould Erin's isle, They began abusin',
    Hurrah for a, says I, Let me shillelagh fly;
    Galway boys were by, knew I was a hobblin,
    with a loud hurray, joined in the affray.
    Soon we cleared the way, For the rocky road to Dublin

    Hey there, folks.

    Someone requested that I upload this song, and sure enough, it wasn't on YouTube already. So here it is, enjoy.

    Do buy the album. These guys are great.

    --Lyrics--

    One summer evening, drunk to hell, I stood there nearly lifeless
    An old man in the corner sang where the water lilies grow
    And on the jukebox Johnny sang about a thing called love
    And it's how are you kid and what's your name, and how'd you bloody know?

    In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky, I lay down on the ground
    And the arms and legs of other men were scattered all around
    Some cursed, some prayed, some prayed then cursed
    Then prayed and bled some more
    And the only thing that I could see
    Was a pair o' brown eyes that was looking at me
    But when we got back, labeled parts one to three
    There was no pair of brown eyes waitin' for me
    And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go, for a pair of brown eyes

    I looked at him, he looked at me, all I could do was hate him
    While Ray and Philomena sang of my elusive dream
    I saw the streams and the rolling hills where his brown eyes were waitin'
    And I thought about a pair of brown eyes, what waited once for me

    So drunk to hell I left the place sometimes crawling sometimes walking
    A hungry sound came across the breeze, so I gave the walls a talking
    And I heard the sounds of long ago, from the old canal
    And the birds were whistling in the trees, where the wind was gently laughin'
    And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go(x3) for a pair of brown eyes(x2)
    And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go(x3) for a pair of brown eyes(x2)

    Where no doctor can relieve me
    If I'm buried 'neath the sod
    But the angels won't receive me

    Let me go boys, let me go boys
    Let me go down in the mud where the rivers all run dry

    This land was always ours
    It was the proud land of our fathers
    It belongs to us and them
    Not to any of the others

    Let them go boys, let them go boys
    Let them go down in the mud where the rivers all run dry

    Bury me at sea
    Where no murdered ghost can haunt me
    If I rock upon the waves
    No corpse can lie upon me

    It's coming up three boys, keeps coming up three boys
    Let them go down in the mud where the rivers all run dry

    If I should fall from grace with God
    Where no doctor can relieve me
    If I'm buried 'neath the sod
    So the angels won't receive me

  • Young Dubliners - I Dont Think Ill Love Anymore

    4:18

    I am here, on a Sunday morning
    The day that you said you were walkin' away
    Dyin' here, but I don't want to wake you
    As long as you're sleeping, you're here

    So I'm wishing you well, though it hurts, can you tell?
    I wont try to stand in your way
    This world keeps turning, the sun will shine on
    But I don't think I'll love anymore

    Lying here, so cold this morning
    Pretend that I'm sleeping, afraid that you'll see
    That I'm dyin' here, I don't want to hurt you
    If only you'd ask me to stay

    So I'm wishing you well, though it hurts, can you tell?
    I wont try to stand in your way

    This world keeps turning, the sun will shine on
    But I don't think I'll love anymore

    We don't say a word, a moment passes
    By end of the day, you've gone on your way
    And I'll ask myself, have I missed all life's chances
    For now, all I can say is that

    I'm wishing you well, though it hurts, can you tell?
    I wont try to stand in your way
    This world keeps turning, the sun will shine on
    But I don't think I'll love anymore
    No, I don't think I'll love anymore

  • Young Dubliners - With All Due Respect - A Pair of Brown Eyes

    4:26

    One summer evening drunk to hell I stood there nearly lifeless
    An old man in the corner sang Where the water lilies grow
    And on the jukebox Johnny sang About a thing called love
    And it's how are you kid and what's your name And how would you bloody know


    In blood and death 'neath a screaming sky I lay down on the ground
    And the arms and legs of other men Were scattered all around
    Some cursed, some prayed, some prayed then cursed
    Then prayed and bled some more
    And the only thing that I could see
    Was a pair of brown eyes that was looking at me
    But when we got back, labeled parts one to three
    There was no pair of brown eyes waiting for me
    And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go For a pair of brown eyes


    I looked at him he looked at me All I could do was hate him
    While Ray and Philomena sang Of my elusive dream
    I saw the streams, the rolling hills Where his brown eyes were waiting
    And I thought about a pair of brown eyes That waited once for me


    So drunk to hell I left the place Sometimes crawling sometimes walking
    A hungry sound came across the breeze So I gave the walls a talking
    And I heard the sounds of long ago From the old canal
    And the birds were whistling in the trees Where the wind was gently laughing
    And a rovin' a rovin' a rovin' I'll go For a pair of brown eyes
