Thread Name: Lyr Add: Dear Old Skibbereen
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Dear Old Skibbereen
I have lyrics to something called a new song for skibbereen..which is still quite old. WE do have a cd out called song for our ancestors an gorta mor the potato famine, which includes a great version of skibbereen by joe martin. also includes a song about the famine roads, one about the coffin ships..one about a father sending his on on a coffin ship, one about walking to the workhouse and dying on the way, one about the girls taken from workhouses to australia, oh, many more. several are by mudcatters including big mick, seamus kennedy, alice, meself, tony m. and i a m probably forgetting some..10 us plus shipping...just pm me...it is truly a great collecgtion of songs...mostly about the famine, a few about more generic emigration.
