Phil Please do, Phil. When you're done, I'll post the third book of Irish ballads - so leave a blank message for me after book two. Later it became very popular, and the names of others appeared as author, but French never drew a ha'penny in royalties. This is the original version. Sweet Marie page 10 Written as a 'take off' of a popular American tune, it nevertheless is redolent of French's youth in the west of Ireland, and like the song following breathes the spirit of the Irish 'Point- to-Point' races. Rafferty's Racin' Mare page 12 Another lively song about an Irish race-meeting.
The Hoodoo page 14 The 'Nigger Minstrel' shows were enjoying a period of great popularity in French's early days. In his own district, and later with a troupe called 'The Kinniepottle Komics' in Cavan, he took part in the craze. This number was in later years used in a London show. The Oklahoma Rose page 15 Written in , but also harking back to the 'Blackface' days.
Over 120 Cherished Folk Songs
The banjo, associated with such troupes, was the instrument French used to accompany himself. Phil the Fluther's Ball page 17 A product of Cavan days: an early song and one of the liveliest and best. Paddy Reilly also was a real life person who had left his home town of Ballyjamesduff to go abroad. A splendid song in any context. Shlathery's Mounted Fut page 20 The idea of a national Irish Army emerging as it did thirty years after this song was written in would have been thought unlikely, to say the least, in French's day, especially in the society to which he naturally belonged; but he himself was not political, and he shared a mutual respect with the country people about whom he wrote.
So there was nothing derogatory in his mind when writing about 'Shiathery' — it is purely a comic song of great life and spirit. Andy McElroe page 22 While, as said, a national army was not envisaged at the time many Irishmen joined the existing British army and served abroad. Andy was one of several such in Percy's songs — a 'hero' out for divilment who was sure to strike terror into the heart of any foe.
Ross' his collaborator was Sir John Ross. It was, in , French's first song to be published after 'Abdulla Bulbul Ameer'. Fighting McGuire page 24 French obviously did not like bullies or windbags. McGuire is one such who is taught a lesson. The tune was lost until about twenty years ago when it was found in the British Museum.
The Girl on a Big Black Mare page 26 An apparently straightforward love song tempered by the logic of the last few lines. Mat Hannigan's Aunt page 26 Written in for a topical review called Dublin—Up-to-Date which he performed with Richard Orpen, later an architect, and Orpen's younger brother William, who was to become famous as a painter, and be knighted. Little Brigid Flynn page 28 A charming number with a plaintive tune on one of French's favourite song themes — the prospective suitor sighing in a wryly-comic way about the bride he would like to have: effective because he never over-lapsed into sentiment — there was always a twinkle in the eye.
Mick's Hotel page 29 One of the few occasions when French satirised in genuine anger — written after he had been overcharged for very poor service in an hotel while on his travels through Ireland. However, he would never reveal the name, or location, of the offending hostelry! It has been sung, and parodied, thousands of times, but still retains its original charm. He wrote it one clear day in when the Mourne Mountains were visible on the horizon from the Hill of Howth, and sent the lyric to Collisson on the back of a postcard.
He saw nothing contradictory in writing this apparently patriotic song in , and in the same year writing another welcoming King Edward to Ireland most effusively! It proved nothing except he loved Ireland and wished the country well on all counts. McBreen's Heifer page 34 Again one of the very best songs, with a typical Irish countryside situation. Should Jamesy take the good-looking daughter on her own, or take the ugly one with a heifer thrown in? In the end he took too long to make up his mind.
The Fortunes of Finnegan page 35 Finnegan was one of those tough, enduring Irishmen for whom French showed cautious respect. The date of the song is uncertain, but it was written in collaboration with Collisson for one of their London concert seasons.
