Dan, Dan the Fine Old Man Irish Song/Recorder Composition
My stepdaughter is Irish- her Mom is first generation American. She is very proud of her Irish heritage and of her 12 aunts and uncles (yes, 13 children!). They were raised in a 3 bedroom house and her mother has great stories of life growing up with an Irish mother with a very thick accent with 13 kids sleeping in 2 bedrooms!
When I found this Irish poem (similar to Old Dan Tucker), I knew it had to become a song! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like the pdf - not all the pictures are here as there are 13 pages!
