The Dubliners

Παραμένουμε στην Ιρλανδία  με τους Dubliners και το Dirty Οld Τown!

Η φολκλορική μπάντα των Dubliners Ιδρύθηκε το 1962 και το 2012 γιόρτασε τα 50 χρόνια μαζί. Τον ίδιο χρόνο ανακοινώθηκε και η διάλυσή της, μετά από τον θάνατο του Barney McKenna ενός από τα ιδρυτικά μέλη της μπάντας.

Το "The Rocky Road to Dublin"   

και το "Raglan Road" με τον Luke Kelly (1940-1984) ένα από τα ιδρυτικά μέλη των Dubliners..

On Raglan Road of an autumn day / I saw her first and knew 
 That her dark hair would weave a snare / That I might one day rue  
I saw the danger and I passed / Along the enchanted way  
And said let grief be a fallen leaf / At the dawning of the day

On Grafton Street in November / We tripped lightly along the ledge
 Of a deep ravine where / an be seen The worth of passion's pledge 
 The Queen of Hearts still making tarts / And I not making hay 
Oh I loved too much and by such by such / Is happiness thrown away

I gave her gifts of the mind / I gave her the secret signs
 Known to the artists who have known / The true gods of sound and stone 
 And word and tint I did not stint / I gave her poems to say 
 With her own name there And her own dark hair / Like clouds over fields of May

On a quiet street where old ghosts meet / I see her walking now 
 Away from me so hurriedly / my reason must allow 
 That I had loved not as I should / A creature made of clay
 When the angel woos the clay / He'll lose his wings at the dawn of day
