Lyrics
I've traveled all over this world,
And now to another I go.
And I know that good quarters are waiting
To welcome old Rosin the Beau.

To welcome old Rosin the Beau. (x2)
And I know that good quarters are waiting
To welcome old Rosin the Beau.

When I'm dead and laid out on the counter
A voice you will hear from below,
Saying "Send down a hogshead of whisky
To drink with old Rosin the Beau.

To drink with old Rosin the Beau". (x2)
Saying "Send down a hogshead of whisky
To drink with old Rosin the Beau".

Then get a half dozen stout fellows
And stack them all up in a row
Let them drink out of half gallon bottles
To the memory of Rosin the Beau

To the memory of Rosin the Beau (x2)
Let them drink out of half gallon bottles
To the memory of Rosin the Beau

Then get a half dozen stout fellows
And let them all stagger and go
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Beau.

And in it put Rosin the Beau. (x2)
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Beau.

Then get ye a couple of bottles.
Put one at me head and me toe.
With a diamond ring scratch upon 'em
The name of old Rosin the Beau.

The name of old Rosin the Beau. (x2)
With a diamond ring scratch upon 'em
The name of old Rosin the Beau.

I feel that old tyrant approaching,
That cruel remorseless old foe,
And I lift up me glass in his honour.
Take a drink with old Rosin the Beau.

Take a drink with old Rosin the Beau. (x2)
And I lift up me glass in his honour.
Take a drink with old Rosin the Beau.

Nicely done, Bing...
...didn't read your description 'till after the listen. Funny. My picture was of green, treeless top of a mountain. Fields. Great view. Check out YOUR description and it's some Irish guy bellying up to the bar.
;-)
As always...wonderful sound, beautifully delivered.

heh-heh
It's all in the perspective. : ) I always thought it was a lush, "how green is my valley" kind of a tune too, until I caught a view of the words. Likewise, I always thought it was about resining up a bow, as in "ready to play". Maybe in some places it is? Anyway - thanks for checking this out!

perfect song for today
where i am, it's currently 48 degrees, slight breeze, sunny w/ no clouds, and everything is bright GREEN. This is a perfect song for such a day, especially since it St. Pat's day. Thank you
dreadmon said 4264 days ago (March 19th, 2007)
nice!
That sounds like a simply gorgeous day! We had similar weather in central Florida, just without the 48 degrees bit (you were talking fahrenheit, right?) - of course, I spent four hours of that beautiful weather mucking about in a garage listening to the Irish and Celtic Music podcast that Mark Gunn does, because I forgot to upload all of this Celtic goodness that everyone's been doing to my iPod! Well, at least I had a sixer of Killian's. Hope you had a wonderful day and thanks for listening!

Another lovely Irish melody...
I haven't heard this tune in years...

Nicely recorded... clear, warm tone from your dulcimer... sounds like the dulcimer's made of wood, not just strings... And the playing once again has a nice folk feel to it, an alive-ness that draws the listener in...

Warm is good
Thanks, Ed! I'm trying to look backwards and see what I did differently with this track to get the warmth as compared to the other recent pieces. Thanks for listening!

beautiful, bing!
you truly know the value of simple, straightforward story telling with your instrument - no ego gets in the way. the rhythmic click of your pick is a small but important part of this richly delivered song. THANK YOU! anne
dreadmon said 4264 days ago (March 19th, 2007)
Beauteous
Thanks Anne! The simplicity of silence is such a beautiful thing, especially when the dulcimer rings out. Thanks for listening and commenting!

Beautiful, as usual
You have certainly been prolific of late, Bing. I do love this melody, and although I know it with different words, this set of lyrics seem particularly appropriate for St. Patrick's Day. You have a couple of real 'killer' Irish songs here, now. I'll be takin' a listen to "The Irish in Me" once I'm done here. Really nice playing - inspirational, really.

Re-do!
Hi Kristi! Oof, I'm glad you enjoyed "The Irish In Me", though it needs a serious re-do. I want to revisit it at some point when I'm not so crammed up and busy. But I'm also glad you enjoyed "Rosin The Beau" - it's pretty easy to be prolific when there's only one track of material to mix and one performance on which to keep tabs. There are some more multitracked projects brewing, but it will probably be a while before they surface here. Besides, I did promise to keep the acoustic music flowing for ya. : ) Thanks for listening and encouraging as always.

Nice
I'll bet this sounds great with string bass - if you want to lay a track down and upload it as a collab, let me know - I'd love to hear it! Thanks for listening and engaging this track!

Celebration to The Pint and St.Patrick
Bing,
Just a fabulous take on this piece.(if you wrote it yourself I apologize)then double fab!
You capture the soul of the Saint and the Sadness in
the Drink as when you have had too many and a sad thought
may cross your mind of someone gone away.But it's knowing
that person that's the important part, some things just
do not last forever (where am I ramblin too?)anyway
another fine post, really enjoyed it, missed it on St.Patrick's day but hearing it today was just fine!

Thank you
Thank you, David! It does sound good as a loud and rowdy drinking song - but it really has an amazing sense of place when played quietly as well. Thanks for listening!

Beautiful
I've always loved Celtic music and a trip to my Grandmother's homestead on Lough Corrib solidified that tendency. This brought tears to my eyes...good ones, mind you. I know nothing on the technical side, I only know what I like. So nice.....(sniff).

Thank you, Feter! We've got to get you playing mountain dulcimer. Maybe as an interim while you get another mandolin. But I think it will stick with you!

Sounds great, Bing.
Bing, I have a dulcimer something like yours at my elementary school, where I teach music. But you make yours sound like a million bucks! Mine does not sound nearly as good.

My big song on the lap dulcimer is "Wild Thing," played with all bar chords. Kids like it. But after hearing your masterful playing, I think I need to expand my rep. a little bit.

Such a simple instrument, and yet such heart-tugging sounds come from it.

Best,

John

Hi John, thanks so much! Speaking of expanding repertoire, now you've got me trying to figure out "Wild Thing." LOL! Thanks for the kind words and for listening.
