This is a song I wrote concerning a true story of being the bearer of bad news in a festival time, and of perhaps how small this world can be. Certainly, it bemoans a cruel irony of bad timing.
No I never knew him, Mícheál Domhnaill, no,
But heard his recordings and they moved me so,
A keening voice in the tongue of the Gael,
He was an inspiration to young and old.
Then I read one day of his terrible fall,
How of Mícheál Domhnaill we’d hear no more,
Well sure I was saddened to be reading the news,
Another great one had passed out of this world.
I was outside The Station in Carrboro, NC,
Playing me whistle, whilst enjoying a pint,
Twas Saint Patrick’s day, I’d be on stage soon,
When she called me o’er for to talk a while.
She told me how she knew Mícheál and Triona,
How they lived in this very town so many years ago,
I could tell by her tone she had not heard the news,
So sadly I informed her of Mícheál ’s fall.
On the day I told her Mícheál Domhnaill died,
Was a day of celebration, of Irish pride,
The Wearin O’ the Green, Twas Saint Patrick’s Day,
On the day I told her Mícheál Domhnaill died.
Well her countenance was stricken, she was grieved full sore,
But I’d no time to comfort as I headed for the door,
My time had come to be singing gay songs,
As she mourned the passing of Mícheál .
Then I had to leave for Raleigh town,
To Tír Na Nóg to again recount,
The Pride O’ Erin, The Wearing of the Green,
On the day I told her Mícheál Domhnaill had died.
