Here’s my Irish Christmas song.
I’m playing a dulcimer made in Maine by Dana Bourgeois many years ago.
It was given to me as gift and sat unused until last year.
The girl singing so beautifully is Nichelle Monroe.
Merry Christmas and love to all!
Follow this link to my itunes store for a listen:
“LJM’s Irish Christmas”
I left a glass of Irish whiskey out for Santa Claus
And he drank it and another one as well
And if I shed a tear, well, it’s too much too close to the surface
Exactly what I couldn’t tell
Love is heaven, love is hell
I like the lights on the Empire State Building
The trees on every corner in New York City
And all the girls at St. Patrick’s in red velvet
Mmm, so pretty
I light a candle for everyone I love and myself
So what were we, maybe 19
It was you, your mother and me
Listening to the choir sing on Christmas Eve
Snow falling, all calm, all bright
Did not heaven and nature sing on that holy night
There is hope in the ringing of the bells
