Biography

The Dubliners was an Irish folk band founded in Dublin, Ireland, in 1962. One of the most influential Irish acts of the 20th century, they celebrated 50 years together in 2012, making them Ireland's longest surviving musical act. Also in 2012, the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards bestowed them with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The group announced their retirement in the autumn of 2012 following the death of founding member Barney McKenna (born 16 December 1939; died 5 April 2012). The surviving members of the group - with the exception of John Sheahan - continue touring under the name of "The Dublin Legends".

    Lyrics
    As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
    I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting
    I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
    Saying "Stand and deliver" for he were a bold deceiver
    Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da

    Lyrics
    The name of this song is "The Seven Drunken Nights"
    We're only allowed to sing five of them, so here goes
    Oh, as I went home on Monday night
    As drunk as drunk could be
    I saw a horse outside the door

    Lyrics
    While in the merry month of May, now from me home I started
    Left, the girls of Tuam were nearly broken-hearted
    Saluted father dear, kissed me darling mother
    Drank a pint of beer, me grief and tears to smother
    Then off to reap the corn and leave where I was born

    Lyrics
    I've been a wild rover for many's the year
    And I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
    But now I'm returning with gold in great store
    And I never will play the wild rover no more
    And it's no, nay, never

    Dreamed a dream by the old canal
    I kissed my girl by the factory wall
