THE CURRAGH OF KILDARE (Traditional Scottish/Irish, 18th Century) Christy Moore - 1962 Finbar & Eddie Furey - 1968 Bert Jansch - 1977 Oysterband - 1994 Marie O'Brien - 1997 Cherish The Ladies - 1999 Eddi Reader - 2001 Atlantis - 2003 Also recorded by: The Johnstons; The Clancy Brothers; Tom Donovan; Noel Murphy; Cliff Haslam & Owen McBride; Tony Davis; The Gardyne Chamber Ensemble. The winter it is past and the summer's come at last The birds they are singing in the trees Their little hearts are glad, but mine is very sad For my true love is far away from me And straight I will repair to the Curragh of Kildare For it's there I'll find tidings of my dear The rose upon the briar by the water running clear Brings joy to the linnet and the deer Their little hearts are blessed, but mine know no rest For my true love is far away from me And straight I will repair to the Curragh of Kildare For it's there I'll find tidings of my dear A livery I will wear and I'll comb back my hair And in velvet so green I will appear And straight I will repair to the Curragh of Kildare For it's there I'll find tidings of my dear And straight I will repair to the Curragh of Kildare For it's there I'll find tidings of my dear I'll wear a cap of black with some frills around my neck Golden rings on my fingers I will wear Oh yes, this I'll undertake for my own true lover's sake For he lives in the Curragh of Kildare And straight I will repair to the Curragh of Kildare For it's there I'll find tidings of my dear Oh, you who are in love and cannot it remove I pity the pain you do endure For experience lets me know that your hearts are full of woe Yes, a woe that no other can cure And straight I will repair to the Curragh of Kildare For it's there I'll find tidings of my dear
