    Cherish The Ladies - The Homecoming

    A song written by Kathleen Boyle, playing piano. Joanie Madden playing penny whistle, Mary Coogan playing guitar, Grainne Murphy playing fiddle, Marie Reilly playing fiddle, Mirella Murray playing accordion, . The empty chair in front of the piano is for Cathie Ryan (vocalist and bodhrán player). There are no vocals or bodhrán rhythm in this song. She's off stage getting a sip of wine. She will be in the next video.

    This one is for Utuna and his wish for the ascii code for Greek.

    Jon Butcher - "Wishes"



    it's late at night in the neighborhood
    and the thieves have all gone to bed
    they can hear your heartbeat in the distance
    as you lay down your weary head
    but don't worry, 'cuz the dawn is breaking
    in another room halfway around the world
    and you can't waste your life wishing upon a star

    'cuz if wishes were horses
    if wishes were horses... hmmm
    if wishes were horses
    then dreamers would ride
    huh, yes they would

    a girl lives her life missing
    some things that she never had
    spends too much time in the unemployment line
    you see in her eyes that it drives her mad
    deep within her constitution
    her pride and her dignity show through
    so she works that dream, 'cuz it's all she can do

    "if wishes were horses... hmmm
    if wishes were horses"
    she says, "if wishes were horses,
    then dreamers would ride...
    yes, they would"

    Now I'm looking all around me for the answers
    and I know you're looking hard, too
    I know what you're thinking
    maybe wishes come true...

    if wishes were horses
    if wishes were horses
    I know if wishes were horses
    then dreamers would ride...
    hoo-hoo-hoo

    Beautiful and meaningful old song for parents and for moms in particular...




    Marie Laforêt - C'est cadeau

    [Parlé: Marie Laforêt:]
    Hier soir, dans la cuisine, Last night, in the kitchen
    je préparais le dîner, quand mon petit garçon est entré. I was preparing the dinner, when my little boy came in
    Il m'a tendu un morceau de papier griffonné. He gave me a sheet of paper
    J'ai essuyé mes mains sur mon tablier, I dried my hands on the apron
    et je l'ai lu. Et voici ce qu'il disait : and read it. Here is what was written

    [Parlé: L'enfant:]
    Pour avoir fait mon lit toute la semaine 3 francs For having made my bed 3 dollars
    Pour avoir été aux commissions 1 franc For having gone shopping 1 dollar
    Pour avoir surveillé le bébé pendant que toi tu allais aux commissions 1 franc 25 For having looked after the baby while you were running errands 1,25 dollar
    Pour avoir descendu la corbeille à papiers 75 centimes For having emptied the waste-paper basket 75 cts
    Pour avoir remonté la corbeille à papiers 1 franc et 10 centimes For having put it back upstairs 1,10 dollar
    Pour avoir arrosé les fleurs sur le balcon 25 centimes For having watered the flowers on the balcony 25 cts
    Total 9 francs et 85 centimes. Total 9 dollars and 85 cts

    [Parlé: Marie Laforêt:]
    Je l'ai regardé, il se tortillait en mâchant son crayon I looked at him, he was wriggling while chewing his pencil
    et une foule de souvenirs sont revenus à ma mémoire. and a multitude of memories came back to my mind.
    Alors j'ai repris son crayon, j'ai retourné la feuille et voilà ce que j'ai écrit : Then, I took his pencil, and wrote on the back of the paper

    [Chanté: Marie Laforêt:]
    Pour neuf mois de patience et douze heures de souffrance For nine months of patience and twelve hours of sufferings
    CADEAU My gift*
    Pour tant de nuits de veille, surveillant ton sommeil For so many sleepless nights, watching your sleep
    CADEAU My gift
    Pour les tours de manège, les jouets, le collège For the rides on the merry-go-round, the toys, the school
    CADEAU My gift
    Et quand on fait le tour, le total de mon amour, And when we sum up it all, the total of my love
    C'est CADEAU It's my gift

    [Parlé: Marie Laforêt:]
    Quand il a eu fini de lire, il avait un gros chagrin dans les yeux. Once he read it, he had tears in his eyes
    Il a levé la tête et a dit : He looked up to me and said :

    "M'Man, je t'aime très beaucoup" Mom, I love you much, much, much

    Il a repris son papier, l'a retourné, et en grosses, grosses lettres, He took his paper back, turned it around and using big, big letters
    a marqué : he wrote :

    "CADEAU" MY GIFT

    [Chanté: Marie Laforêt:]
    Et quand on fait le tour, le total de l'amour, and when we sum up it all, the total of love
    C'est CADEAU, C'est CADEAU It's all gifts, it's all gifts.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * or : for free

    That one wasn't easy to translate because I prefered "for free" over "my gift" but the notion of "gift, present" would have been less emphasized...

    This song is about the Irish immigrants in the 1840's who had to leave their homeland in search of a better life. The English landlords were stealing the lands by increasing taxes. They immigrated to Canada, with little money and the clothes on their backs, because it was a stepping stone to the USA, where land for farming was available for homesteading. My great-great-grand mother and her family came from Londonderry to Quebec City.

    [video=youtube;RmSdRRgcZx8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmSdRRgcZx8[/video]

    “The Green Fields of Canadaâ€￾

    Farewell to the groves of shillelagh and shamrock
    Farewell to the wee girls of old Ireland all 'round
    May their hearts be as merry as ever I would wish them
    When far, far away across the ocean I'm bound

    Oh my father is old, and my mother is quite feeble
    To leave their own country, it grieves their heart sore
    Oh the tears in great drops down their cheeks, they are rolling
    To think they must die upon some foreign shore

    But what matters to me where my bones may be buried
    If in peace and contentment I can spend my life
    Oh the green fields of Canada, they daily are blooming
    And it's there I'll put an end to my miseries and strife

    So pack up your sea stores and tarry no longer
    Ten dollars a week isn't very bad pay
    With no taxes or tithes to devour up your wages
    When you're on the green fields of America

    The sheep run unshorn, and the land's gone to rushes
    The handyman is gone, and the winders of creels
    Away across the ocean go journeyman tailors
    And fiddlers that play out the old mountain reels

    Farewell to the dances in homes now deserted
    When tips struck the lightening in sparks from the floor
    The paving and crigging of hobnails on flagstones
    The tears of the old folk and shouts of encore

    For the landlords and bailiffs in vile combination
    Have forced us from hearth stone and homestead away
    May the crowbar brigade all be doomed to damnation
    When we're on the green fields of America

    And it's now to conclude and to finish my story
    If e'er friendless Irishmen chance my way
    With the best in the house I will treat him and welcome
    At home in the green fields of America

    Είστε ευπρόσδεκτοι, Utuna

    I only wish it was easier to change the fonts by typing the code in.

    Scene from Easy Rider

    Billy: Where ya from man?
    Stranger on the Highway: Hard to say.

    Stranger on the highway: I'm from the city... Doesn't matter what city; all cities are alike.
    Billy: Well, why'd you mention it then?
    Stranger on the highway: 'Cause I'm FROM the city; a long WAY from the city, and that's where I wanna be right now.

    Keep an eye on these guys. Reminds me of The Band, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mumford and Sons. They will be the new big thing. Great harmonies, each could be lead singer. On tour now with Willie Nelson.
