lyrics

(poem by W.B. Yeats)

When i play on my fiddle in dooney
folk dance like a wave of the sea
my cousin is priest in kilvarnet
my brother in mocharabuiee

I passed my brother and cousin:
they read in their books of prayer;
I read in my book of songs
I bought at the sligo fair.

When we come at the end of time,
to peter sitting in state,
he will smile on the three old spirits,
but call me first through the gate;

For the good are always the merry,
save by an evil chance,
and the merry love the fiddle
and the merry love to dance

And when the folk there spy me,
they will all come up to me,
with ‘here is the fiddler of dooney!’
and dance like a wave of the sea
