Learn An Irish Song

(These are songs you may well hear sung in an Irish pub.They all could possibly be classified as folk songs or traditional songs. I have invited a number of my friends to sing some of them.)

The 1st column in green contains the sung (vocal) version for the purposes of learning the correct version of the song.

Where there are 2 versions of the song (F) will be a female vocalist and (M) will be a male vocalist

These songs may be a variation of what you have heard but should be close to what is sung in Irish pubs. 

The 2nd column contains a midifile version of the song as used in the song itself and can be used to sing along with.

If you download Van Basco's Karaoke (free) you can alter the pitch (Key) and the tempo (Speed) of the song to your own specifications

The 3rd column contains a lyrics/chords sheet as used with the song. Capos may be required while accompanying these songs to facilitate key and pitch.

The comments column is for extra information. To see the information, if any, drag your pointer across the cell

(Please allow for differences in the way you may have heard the songs sung prevously. There are many reasons why singers perform the same song diferently. Also, you may have to transpose the midifile or alter the tempo and change the key/chords on the lyrics sheet to suit your voice and/or pitch.)

PLEASE DO SOURCE THE ORIGINAL SONGS BY THE SONGWRITERS AND/OR THE SINGERS

Any information on the singers performing these songs on this website may be had on request at the email address below
