The Golden Jubilee

Post by Madra Rua on Fri Aug 13, 2010 2:18 pm

A traditional Irish song good to learn for anniversaries
(especially 50th ones!)



THE GOLDEN JUBILEE

'Way down in the county Kerry, in a place they call Tralee
A fine old couple they lived there - Kate and Pat Magee
They were going to have a party on their Golden Jubilee
Now Kate, says she to Pat Magee, come and listen here to me

CHORUS
Put on your ould knee-britches and your coat of emerald green
Take off that hat me darlin' Pat, put on your ould caibin
For to-today's our Golden Wedding and I'll have you all to know
Just how we looked when we were wed, fifty years ago
Oh, well do I remember how we danced on the village green
You held me in your arms, dear Pat, and called me your cailin
Your hair was like a raven's wing but now it's turning grey
Come over here, ould sweetheart dear, and hear what I've to say
Chorus
Oh, well do I remember when first I was your bride
In the little chapel on the hill where we stood side by side
Of good friends we've had many, of troubles we've had few
Come over here ould sweetheart dear, and here's what you must do
Chorus
