Forty Shades of Green

“I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one, I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun, of happy memories that I leave when life is done.”


 - Dermot O'Brien
(23 Oct 1932 - 22 May 2007)

Dear Friends and  Schoolmates,

   Did you think that once St. Patrick's Day was over that we'd be done visiting Ireland? If so, in that you did err!  

BONUS - Forty Shades of Green - Johnny Cash


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forty_Shades_of_Green:

"Forty Shades of Green" is a well known song about Ireland. It was written by Johnny Cash in 1959 while on a trip to Ireland.[1] Contrary to popular belief, Cash did not invent the term 'forty shades of green', it had been used in Ireland many years before he wrote the song.

He released it as a B-side of The Rebel-Johnny Yuma released in 1961. It is also featured on two albums: 1. Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash, released on Columbia Records in 1963 and 2. Johnny Cash: The Great Lost Performance - Live at the Paramount Theatre, Asbury Park, New Jersey recorded live in 1990 and released in 2007.

Forty Shades of Green

Written and recorded by Johnny Cash (26 Feb 1932 – 12 Sept  2003), 1959/1961

 

1. Ar thaisteal dom im’ chuimní
chuig oileáinín mo chroí
Ó naomhóga an Daingin
go tránna Donaghdee,

Is fada uaim an tSionainn
agus muintir Sciobairín,
Na móintigh is na móinéir
go haoibhinn is go caoin.

2. Is fada uaim mo chailín breá
I dTiobraid Árann Theas,
Is faide fós a bhraithim uaim
a béilín tana tais;

Ba bhreá liom seal a chaitheamh ann
go bhfeicfinn mar a bhí
Na móintigh is na móinéir
go haoibhinn is go caoin.

3. Ba bhreá liom seal a chaitheamh ann
cois trá i mBail’ Áth’ Clí
’S go bhfeicfinn baint na móna
is an choirce aibí bhuí,

Go bhfeicfinn mná ag diasrú dos
na tithe beag’ ceann tuí –
Do shiúlfainn cúigíbh Éireann
go haoibhinn is go caoin.

4. Is fada uaim mo chailín breá
I dTiobraid Árann Theas,
Is faide fós a bhraithim uaim
a béilín tana tais;

Ba bhreá liom seal a chaitheamh ann
go bhfeicfinn mar a bhí
Na móintigh is na móinéir
go haoibhinn is go caoin.

1. I close my eyes and picture
The emerald of the sea
From the fishing boats at Dingle
To the shores of Donaghadea

I miss the River Shannon,
The folks at Skibbereen
The moorlands and the meadows
And the forty shades of green

2. But most of all I miss a girl
in Tipperary town
And most of all I miss her lips
As soft as eiderdown [1]

I long again to see and do
The things we've done and seen
Where the breeze is sweet as Shalamar [2]
And
there's forty shades of green.

3. I wish that I could spend an hour
at Dublin´s churning surf.
I long to watch the farmers drain
the bogs and spade the turf

to see again the thatching
of the straw the women clean.
I´d walk from Cork to Larne [3] to see
those Forty Shades of Green.

4. But most of all I miss a girl
in Tipperary town
And most of all I miss her lips
As soft as eiderdown.

I long again to see and do
The things we've done and seen
Where the breeze is sweet as Shalamar
And
there's forty shades of green.
