Celtic Music's Top 10 Lines

Best Blogger Tips

Now Mari and her mother are an awful lot together
In fact you hardly see the one without the other
And people often wonder if it's Mari or her mother
Or both of them together I'm courting
 From: Mari-Mac, Chords and Lyrics


I'm gonna make me a big sharp axe
Shining steel tempered in the fire
I'll chop you down like an old dead tree
Dirty old town Dirty old town
From: Dirty Old Town, Chords and Lyrics


The sun was setting in the west,
The birds were singing on every tree.
All nature seemed inclined to rest
But still there was no rest for me
 From: Farewell to Nova Scotia, Chords and Lyrics


I go to the Clyde and I mourn and weep
For satisfied I ne'er can be
I write her a letter, just a few short lines
And suffer death a thousand times.
 From: Black is the Color, Chords and Lyrics


I looked out from under the blanket up at the fireplace.
The Pope and John F. Kennedy were starin' in me face.
 From: Delirium Tremens, Chords and Lyrics 


And when I'm dead and in my grave
No costly tombstone will I crave
Just lay me down in my native peat
With a jug of punch at my head and feet
 From: Jug of Punch, Chords and Lyrics


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'
 From: A Pair of Brown Eyes, Chords and Lyrics

But my sons have sons, 
as brave as were their fathers
 From: Four Green Fields, Chords and Lyrics


I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober,
a handsome rover from town to town
 From: Carrickfergus, Chords and Lyrics


And all I've done for want of wit,
to memory now I cannot recall.
So fill me to the parting glass
Goodnight and joy be with you all.
From: The Parting Glass, Chords and Lyrics
