Celtaddict Lyr Req: The Widow's Promise (Mick Ryan) (42) RE: Lyr Req: The Widow's Promise (Mick Ryan) 04 Mar 10


Hello, Mick Ryan, it is good to 'meet' you. This song has been a favorite of mine for many years. I am not really a singer, mind, but was over in Ireland (I am a Yank myself) once for a mighty sing on the Burren and eventually a few folks pointed out that I could not just listen but must sing too. Frances Kennedy had, a good deal earlier, done a funny bawdy song or two. I did this one and it went over well. The folks near me asked who wrote it (noise levels were such that no introductions were possible but people quieted at once when they heard singing) and I told them Mick Ryan. They looked at one another and said, incredulously, "Not OUR Mick Ryan." They only knew your more serious songs, and I did not realize I was that near to your territory.
Slainte!
