Mountains of Mourne

Oh, Mary, this London's a wonderful sight
With people here working by day and by night
They don't sow potatoes nor barley nor wheat
But there's gangs of them diggin' for gold in the street
At least when I asked them, that's what I was told
So I just took a hand at this diggin' for gold
But for all that I've found there, I might as well be
In the place where the dark Mourne sweeps down to the sea

I believe that when writin' a wish you expressed
As to how the fine ladies of London were dressed
But if you'll believe me, when asked to a ball
They don't wear no tops to their dresses at all
Oh, I've seen them myself and you could not in truth
Tell if they were bound for a ball or a bath
Don't be startin' them fashions now, Mary McRee,
In the place where the dark Mourne sweeps down to the sea

There's beautiful girls here, oh, never you mind
Beautiful shapes Nature never designed
Lovely complexions of roses and cream
But let me remark with regard to the same
That if at those roses you venture to sit
The colors might all come away on your lip
So I'll wait for the wild rose that's waitin' for me
In the place where the dark Mourne sweeps down to the sea

Very nice. Great video. Another cover showed up on the YouTube list from Don Mclean so I could make a comparison with an artist I am familiar with. Your version is equally impressive. Can't ask for more.

Rob, you have such an amazing voice! How I wish I could make notes flow out of my vocal chords the way you can! So smooth and effortless sounding!

And here we have an example of your versatility! A couple of tunes ago it was an excellent 80's style pop song, while this time it's an Irish traditional! You just don't have any boundaries do you?? wink

The old photos in the video did a good job of visually creating a space in time for the song to reside. Without the video, the impact of the song wouldn't have been quite the same for me. Beautiful scenery to go with the beautiful song.

I guess that was Anne-Marie singing harmonies... as usual a very nice job! But maybe a little bit understated. We always want to hear as much of her contribution as possible.

Great job, my friends! I always enjoy everything you post, and this was no exception!

Really nicely done!! Pretty song, a superb vocal delivery, and the instrumentation could not have worked better. This is a bit different for you guys-very traditional folk sound. Some really interesting lyrics. You nailed it!! Take care. Greg

Hey Guys,

We just listened and watched...mesmerizing!
The production is outstanding and particularly
the vocals and the vid images. There is a wealth
of great material out in the public domain just
awaiting a new vibrant interpretation like this.
Thanks for introducing us to this one.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for your nice words!
We like to try all kinds of styles.
Yes, the harmonies are Anne-Marie's. We thought the song just needed some modest harmonies. Other songs ask for more.
