After the singing of Joe Heaney on the double album 'The Road from Connemara'

lyrics

It being on the third of June as I sat weaving all by my loom
It being on the third of June as I sat weaving all by my loom
A birdie sang on an ivy bunch
And the song he sang was a jug of punch

Ladlee fol the day…

What more diversion can a man desire than to sit him down beside the fire What more diversion can a man desire than to sit him down beside the fire
And on the table a jug of punch
And on his knee one tidy wench

Ladlee fol the day…

What more diversion can a man endure than to sit him down behind the door
What more diversion can a man endure than to sit him down behind the door
And on the table no jug of punch
And on his knee no tidy wench

Ladlee fol the day…

When I am dying and my drinking’s o’er I will take one drink and then take no more
When I am dying and my drinking’s o’er I will take one drink and then take no more
In case I wouldn’t get another chance
I will take one now and then pass o’er

Ladlee fol the day…

When I am dead and in my mould at my head and feet lay a flowing bowl
When I am dead and in my mould at my head and feet lay a flowing bowl
And everyone who passes by
They can take one drink and remember I…

Ladlee fol the day

The Guardian decided that this outwardly delicate record “has a bite behind it, showing you the stuff under the skin”. If Virginia Astley, Joanna Newsom and The Unthanks appeal to your ears and heart, then County Down native Brona is your new favourite artist ... more
